A Collecting Pause

After almost 60 years of collecting, our staff has made the decision to place a temporary moratorium (pause) on acquiring new items. This collection's moratorium will be in place until June 30, 2024. This period will allow the curatorial staff to perform a full assessment of our collections, policies, and procedures. Any unsolicited items for donation will not be accepted during this time period and drop-offs without appointment will not be considered.

Limited Exceptions

In very limited cases, exceptions to the moratorium may be made for items of significant historical importance. If you still wish for your artifacts to be considered, please fill out this form and submit it to [email protected]. Forms will be evaluated on a quarterly basis.

Other options for donation

If you wish to support the care of Heritage Park’s historical collections through a monetary donation, please visit our donation page and designate “other” and enter “curatorial” as the specific use.

Item donations will not be accepted without a prior appointment.

Preserving our past

Thank you for your interest in supporting Heritage Park Historical Village through item donation. As an accredited museum, Heritage Park has a stewardship role in preserving our historical assets that include our collection of more than 55,000 objects. The collection is largely made up of items donated by people like you, and these objects help us tell the story of the settlement of Western Canada.

Heritage Park has implemented the Restrictions Exemption Program. For more information visit our COVID-19 Information page
