Will the Naperville Heritage Society exhibit my donated items?
NHS cannot guarantee that any donated materials will be exhibited, unless collected and accepted explicitly for that purpose. The museum is committed to ensuring the long-term preservation of donated materials, displayed or preserved in storage. Based on various factors and criteria such as condition and display needs for the museum, many donated materials are available for scholarly research and, on occasion, loaned to other museums and cultural centers for special displays and exhibitions.
