The mission of Mount Clare Museum House is to educate the public with respect to the historical, cultural, and social significance of the Mount Clare Museum House and to the period in which the house was built and lived in by members of the Carroll family (1760-1850). Monetary donations, of course, provide the means to have professional staff to produce exhibits and quality educational programs, as well as fund the necessary operating expenses. But objects play a key role as they are the means to interpret the history; they have the ability to tell the stories that make the history come alive.

Do you own artifacts that you think may be related to Mount Clare's mission? Would you like to share them with the goal of improving public understanding of 18th and 19th century Maryland life, while insuring that they are preserved and permanently cared for?

Consider donating an object or objects to Mount Clare Museum House. We currently accept donations of furniture, metals, decorative arts, textiles, books, documents that match our mission. Objects of particular interest are those related to the Carroll, Tilghman, and Maccubbin families, 18th and early 19th century objects with Maryland or Baltimore origins, and other objects related to the period 1760-1850. Before being accepted by the museum, all donations will be reviewed by our collections committee.

We are also interested in many office and household items that can be used by staff, visitors and volunteers, such as office supplies, furniture, flat screen TV, file cabinets, tools, cotton sheets, exhibit or display furnishings, materials for school craft programs, etc. Donations such as these offset our expenses and are tax deductible.
