Our Adopt-An-Artifact Program
We need your support. By adopting an artifact, you are assisting Holocaust Museum Houston with the preventative care and treatment of all objects in our collection and helping to ensure the long-term preservation of historical materials. All monies donated to the “Holocaust-Era Railcar” or the “Danish Rescue Boat” will directly support these objects. All monies donated to “General Conservation” will support all of the Museum’s objects, including photographs, documents and textiles.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is conservation of artifacts?
Conservation is the preventative care and treatment of items in a museum’s collection to ensure the long-term preservation of historical materials. Conservation preserves items in their present condition to stop further deterioration

Why support conservation?
Artifacts are used to teach the lessons of the Holocaust. Our Survivors will not be here forever, but their materials can be saved for future generations with proper care and maintenance.

Why does it cost so much to care for Museum artifacts?
Many steps are involved in caring for and documenting individual objects. To properly care for them, each artifact should be stored in acid-free containers in a climate-controlled storage space.

Will my donation go to conserve a specific artifact?
Please refer to the “Choose An Artifact” tab. All monies donated to the “Holocaust-Era Railcar” or “Danish Rescue Boat” will directly support these objects. All monies donated to “General Conservation” will support all of HMH’s objects, including photographs, documents and textiles.

Can I view any of the artifacts?
Yes, several are currently on display in our permanent exhibition. However, artifacts are rotated periodically for conservation purposes, so do not be alarmed if some are not currently on view.

Will you send me a letter for tax purposes?
Yes, you will receive an e-mail confirmation (watch your spam filters to make sure it is not intercepted). You will also receive written confirmation within two weeks of your donation.
