Giving to the Museum of Australian Democracy
The Museum of Australian Democracy collection, connected to and located within the historical heart of Australian government, captures the ideas, movements, individuals and events of Australian democracy.
Any additions to our collection are guided by the Collection Development Plan.
You can help to ensure that Australia’s democratic, political and parliamentary heritage is preserved for the benefit of future generations by making a gift to the Museum of Australian Democracy.
The museum is a Deductible Gift Recipient under the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997, and regularly accepts donations under the auspices of the Australian Government’s Cultural Gifts Program.
Please don’t send unsolicited items
Talk to us first about what you would like to donate and we will assess it to ensure it meets the museum’s collection policy. If appropriate, the museum will assist in submitting your claim as a tax deduction through the Cultural Gifts Program. Please note that museum staff cannot offer valuations of material you may own.
