Costume Collection Off-site Storage

Due to the immense size of our 4,000+ items costume collection and our limited storage space at the Museum at 411 Linden, we currently house our costume collection in a climate and pest controlled off-site facility. We are actively seeking a donor to help us keep our collection in this top-rate facility, to avoid the damage that would occur if we were to move the collection to a cheaper, non-climate controlled facility.

  • Off-site costume storage (one month) – $250
  • Off-site costume storage (one year)     – $3,000
