The U.S. Naval Undersea Museum collects artifacts related to U.S. naval undersea history, technology, operations, and experiences. If you have items you are interested in donating that you believe fit this mission, please contact the museum’s curator by emailing NUM_curator@us.navy.mil or calling (360) 396-5517.
Please note that offering the museum a donation does not guarantee acceptance of your item(s). The museum’s Collections Committee reviews all potential donations and makes the final decision regarding their acceptance into our collection. Decisions take into account a great many factors such as an item’s relationship to the museum’s mission, historical significance, physical condition, size, cost of storage and care, commonness, and potential use in exhibits or by researchers.
