Building the Collection
Savoy Automobile Museum intends to build a collection of items for display, programming, research, and fundraising. Those who gift unrestricted automobiles, library and archival items, artifacts, and automobilia are helping to preserve the history and diversity of automobiles through changing exhibits, programs, and engaging experiences. A Collections Committee evaluates all potential contributions based on overall condition, rarity, originality, authenticity, history, and provenance. It determines if they fall within the scope of the museum’s mission and are manageable with available resources.
Do you have a car that has a story to tell? Over the last two years, Savoy has received numerous vehicle donations. These gifts are appreciated additions to the collection. Your commitment to give will have a long-term impact on future generations.
Donating to Research Library & Archives
Savoy Automobile Museum accepts donations of new and gently used collections that support the museum’s non-circulating Reference Library. There is a need for automotive-related books, newsletters, periodicals, historical documents, programs, catalogs, manuals, literature, and other printed materials.
Donating Artifacts and Automobilia
Out with the old and in with the new. If you are downsizing or updating your collection, consider a gift to the museum. We accept donations of original artwork, signs (metal/porcelain/neon), pedal cars and diecast cars, apparel, mascots, badges, hood ornaments, posters, automobile parts, and more to help support the museum.
