So many artifacts, so little time…
Would you believe that it costs nearly $40,000 in utilities, facility costs, and supplies just to keep the collection items perched on a shelf and displayed in the gallery? With staff time added on top of that…well, we need your help to maintain the great quality of service to Anoka County that we have since 1935.
Adopt one of the artifacts in the ACHS collection for a year and help with the cost of preserving it at the best museum standards.
