Do you love revolutionary history and want to help preserve it?  Want to know that your well-meaning gift will make a difference to our museum collection and future visitors? The Bostonian Society has an Adopt an Artifact program where you can give directly to the conservation of specific museum artifacts that our Collections Manager has identified as needing conservation.  Your donation will help to preserve these items for years to come.

To learn more about the program, please visit our website.  On this page, you'll be able to see the artifacts that need to be adopted and learn more about their history and the specific conservation work that is needed.  You'll also be able to see some of the previously adopted artifacts.

If you have questions about the Adopt an Artifact program, please leave them in the comments or contact our Collections Manager directly by email.
