On regular basis people donate items to Museum Wings of Liberation. Moving to a smaller home, ending a collecting hobby or death of a relative are just a few reasons for people to donate items to our museum. Most diverse items are donated, such as newspapers from the period ’40 – ’45, uniforms, awards, models and also weapons or parts of weapons.
On these pages we show you a portion of the donations the museum has received recently. If you consider yourself such a gift, then the information given below will give you more insight in how to handle
It is recommened to contact the museum by phone (+31-499-329722) or via e-mail (
) before you bring your gift to the museum. We can assess in advance how your offering fits in our collection and to make further arrangements for the transfer of the gift.
If you consider to donate a weapon (dagger, bayonet, pistol) than it is imperative, even in your own interest, that you contact the museum beforehand. This to prevent problems with the Dutch Arms and Ammunition Laws, for you and the museum. Our staff will put you in contact with our arms administrators and they will contat you to discuss the next steps of your gift to the museum.
A written agreement with you is the final step of the transfer of your gift.
