Consider Supporting the Future of Our Past


Rooted in history, the Collinsville Historical Museum has established a tradition of preservation of our past using established museum standards coupled with technology to provide information and content to our community. The Museum has a rich tradition of attracting special donors who have generously created gifts to secure our future. as we work diligently to preserve and share our past.

Your gift will support the important work of our volunteer staff and dedicated researchers. Caring for the vast collection of artifacts that makes up our collection, requires dedicated effort to research, record, and identify the information associated with each item in our collection. Your support will insure the museum will remain the keeper of the past, on into the future.
