Donating Artifacts & Archival Items to the Coast Guard History Program

Thank you for your interest in donating artifacts or archival items to the U.S. Coast Guard History & Heritage Program.  The Museum Association does not directly accept artifacts or archival items, but the Coast Guard Historian's Office lays out the criteria, requirements and processes that take place for the Coast Guard to accept donations related to the history, heritage and material culture of the Coast Guard.

If you are interested in donating an artifact (three dimensional items such as uniforms, swords, personnel effects, equipment, models, etc.) to the Coast Guard Heritage Asset Collection or archival items (personal or official papers, records, reports, letters, diaries, scrapbooks and photographs, etc.) to the Coast Guard Archives, please visit the U.S. Coast Guard Historian's Office.
