The Australian Museum greatly appreciates the many kind offers we receive each year from people looking to donate items for our collections.

Unfortunately, with over 21 million items in our scientific and cultural collections, the space and curatorial capacity we have for new collection items is very limited.

New acquisitions are subject to a rigorous and extensive process of analysis and review to ensure they represent the best possible fit with our existing collections, public programs and research priorities.
