WHY

DONATE

Supporting donations play a vital role in museums, serving as an important source for new exhibits. They not only enrich the museum's collections but also contribute to the cultural and cognitive enrichment of the entire community. It's of utmost importance to institutionally preserve artifacts that bear witness to specific times or events, such as in our case with the Homeland War, which marks the foundation of our statehood.

Here are some reasons why donations matter:
- Ensuring professional and proper protection and supervision.
- Providing suitable accommodation.
- Conducting professional processing and analysis.
- Making items available for research and study purposes to the academic community.
- Showcasing artifacts to the wider public.
- Elevating the item's status to a cultural asset.
- Guaranteeing the security of donated items.
