Artifact Donation

Thank you for your interest in donating an artifact or item to our collection.

 

The SS LANE VICTORY collects items related Merchant Mariner history, Merchant Vessel Operations and other items related to the service of the SS LANE VICTORY. Occasionally, the Museum Curator will accept donations that may be significant with a limited connection.

 

Currently, we are seeking items to add to the collection related to SS LANE VICTORY’s service as follows:

  • Wartime & Peacetime Service
  • Navy Armed Guard
  • Korean Refugee Rescue
  • USMMVWWII Historical Documents

 

Artifacts and items accepted may include uniforms, clothing, bedding, linens, flags, medical items, printed materials, art, photographic mediums, military weaponry, models, and various military artifacts.

 

At the discretion of Museum Staff, additional items with significant historical impact may be accepted.

 

Unfortunately due to storage space, we are unable to accept all artifacts.  Additionally, there is no guarantee that the item may go on display.

 

SS LANE VICTORY Museum policy requires that only Museum Collection Staff accept items.  A receipt will be issued to you once the items are accepted.  Items that are left with volunteers or on the SS LANE VICTORY randomly, will be treated as abandoned property.  

 

For questions, please email our Museum Curator at curator@lanevictory.org .

 

Thank you for your support of the SS LANE VICTORY Museum!
