If you have any 1940s or 1950s household goods, furniture, clothing, decorative arts, games, toys, records, radios, television sets, or other interesting items, please contact our history curators at [email protected] or call us at 614) 297-2535

Our Curators are excited to see what our fabulous patrons have in their own collections and might be willing to donate.  We do have a broad list of categories we are looking for but we are staying away from specifies to keep the details of the exhibit under wraps while we continue to plan.  Donations to either the permanent or education collections are preferred but we are happy to discuss long term loans for the exhibition.
