A gift to the Cody Heritage Museum is an object that the owner irrevocably and unconditionally gives to the Museum, including all right and title, all copyright, trademark and related interests.
Objects lent to the Cody Heritage Museum remain in the Museum for the time specified on our agreement, unless there are arrangements made for an extension. Objects loaned will only be returned to the Lender or their agent. Loaned items can be renewed yearly at our request.
It is possible that some objects will not fit our criteria -- or our space! In that case, the object will be returned to the owner(s).

What's in YOUR Closet?
Artifacts and Objects are still needed to complete the Museum displays in the 6 focus areas. If you or your family has items that would illustrate one of those areas, we encourage you to gift them to the CHM, where they will be safe and admired for years to come. Items should relate to the early history of the Cody area, through the 1960's. We are covering the area within the boundaries of Park County Fire District 2.
We are looking for: journals, letters, advertising memorabilia, souvenirs, personal items, home or business furnishings (smaller than a shoe box!), military insignia/uniform pieces, etc.
