Let’s Take a Look...
Curators Examine Your Treasures
A monthly offering at MIAC, Let’s Take a Look is your chance to bring by your personal treasures for evalauation. While curators are prohibited from assigning retail value (we have a list of external appraisers for you), our curatorial staff is great at helping determine age, origin, use, etc. of many objects. Items with Native American roots are most common, but we can also help with other items periodically.
This is a free program.
