CONTRIBUTE A PIECE

The Traveling Museum of the Paranormal & Occult is dedicated to the study, preservation, and display of haunted, historical, and supernaturally-significant artifacts. For that reason, we’re always interested in obtaining items that could benefit from study and preservation, as well as the education of the museum’s visitors. Will you contribute an artifact?

While many of the pieces on display have come from paranormal investigations and anomalous sites around the world, the items in the Newkirk collection are not limited to haunted objects. While we’re interested in adding both supernaturally-influenced and historically significant items to the museum, our process for acquiring each is much different.

Contribute an artifact to the museum’s collection, and you’ll be helping protect and preserve valuable history, folklore, and potential avenues for paranormal breakthroughs for generations to come, safe in the knowledge that internationally-recognized authorities on the anomalous are caring for the artifacts in the collection.

If you have an item that you would like to donate to the collection, please see the guidelines below for more information on contributing an artifact to the Traveling Museum of the Paranormal & Occult.

HAUNTED OBJECTS

If you have an artifact which you believe may be haunted, cursed, or otherwise supernaturally-influenced, the curators of the Traveling Museum of the Paranormal & Occult are more than happy to assist you with the item’s removal, investigation, and preservation. Should the activity appear too volatile, the curators will make every effort to personally contain the item themselves.

If you choose to contribute an artifact to the collection, the curators will provide you with a special signed and stamped letter of exchange exclusive to donors, provide you with detailed information gathered from their investigation of the artifact, and should you choose to make your donation public, list your name as the donor on the item’s display.

Before sending items to the museum’s address, the Newkirks ask that you include a letter (handwritten, if possible) detailing the item’s history, strange activity, and any details which may be relevant to the item’s investigation. Photographs, audio recordings, and other evidence are also greatly appreciated. This information can also be emailed to the museum prior to shipping the artifact.

For more information or to receive help with your haunted object, please do not hesitate to email museum curators Greg or Dana at:

In the event of an emergency, please phone: (513) 818-3345

Note:
Due to the sensitive and easily exploitable nature of the museum’s work, the curators can not accept loans, leases, or otherwise temporary arrangements with potentially haunted artifacts.
