The Gibbons Museum is a non-profit organization that does not charge for admission. We believe this allows equal access to individuals and encourages broader community engagement. As such, the museum relies on sponsorships and donations.
The majority of artifacts found at the Gibbons Museum are donated from individual community members. Such donations are greatly appreciated by the museum as they add visual interest and allow exhibits and collections to grow. Artifacts may also be loaned for a specified period of time at the donors request. All donations request a Gift agreement be signed.
Many of the artifacts at the Gibbons Museum have been donated, including this Barber Chair
Currently, the Gibbons Museum is specifically looking for donations involving:
- Photos of the Athabasca Trail Stopping House
- Past photos of the Town of Gibbons businesses
- Sport memorabilia from 1900 to present day
Monetary Donations and Sponsorships:
Monetary donations and Sponsorships are utilized by the Gibbons Museum in order to cover operating costs of the museum: these can include utilites, grounds keeping, and programming at the museum. All donations over $20.00 will receive a tax receipt.
