If you want to submit objects, photos or records to Ringkøbing Fjord Museer, we are interested in getting as much information as possible:
- Who used the materials?
- Where and when has it been used?
- What has it been used for?
- Who made it?
- Where and when was it made?
The museum is also interested in photos, letters and other material that can help shed light on the origin, ownership and use of the materials.
This information allows us to assess whether the material belongs in the museum. When you hand in the material to the museum, you will be asked to fill in and sign a hand-in slip to confirm that the material has been handed over to the museum.
The material will be registered in the museum's collection database. If necessary, it will be sent for conservation and then it will be stored in safe conditions in the museum's storerooms for the benefit of the present and the future.
Once an object material has entered a museum, Ringkøbing Fjord Museer cannot discard it without prior government authorization, in which case we must contact the donor.
Ringkøbing Fjord Museer receive many offers for objects, photos and archives, but as we are collecting for specific purposes and have limited space in our storerooms, we often have to turn down offers and may have to refer you to other museums and collections. Therefore, before you come to the museum, we encourage you to contact us to make an appointment.
If you want to submit detector finds, objects or soil finds that most likely belong to the period before 1536 (modern times), please contact our archaeological department, Archaeology West Jutland.Contact the historians
