Donate Your Materials

An important and easy way to become involved with the Jewish Museum Milwaukee is to donate materials documenting the diversity of life of Milwaukee's Jewish individuals, families, organizations and businesses for research and display purposes. Future Museum exhibitions will be developed from our archives. These archival materials can include:

  • Letters, diaries, recollections and reflections
  • Photographs, scrapbooks
  • Family genealogies
  • Veterans' photos and stories
  • Household records, cookbooks
  • School annuals, schoolwork
  • Citizenship records
  • Birth, marriage and death certificates
  • Newspaper articles
  • Programs, newsletters and club records
  • Business records, contracts, marketing plans
  • Scholarly manuscripts
  • Technical reports, product designs, blueprints
  • Advertising media
  • Membership rosters
  • Audio and videotapes

If you have materials to donate, or if you know someone else who does, please contact us at, or call us at 414-390-5730.
