The Customs House Museum & Cultural Center relies on generous donations from individuals, businesses and community organizations to build our collections and preserve these artifacts for future generations.
The Customs House Museum & Cultural Center’s mission is to collect, preserve and interpret historic, artistic and scientific material primarily related to Montgomery County, Tennessee. This mission is fulfilled in part by the collection, preservation and interpretation of material culture. The Museum maintains two collections for this purpose:
- Permanent Collection: Artifacts are preserved according to archival standards for the benefit of the public and are available for research, exhibitions and programs.
- Education Collection: Artifacts are used as educational tools and may be displayed, handled, used for tactile purposes, research and education programming.
Don’t have an artifact to donate? You can still help preserve the collections by making a monetary donation on the Donate Page.
