Without donations, some history museums would not be able to stay open. It costs a lot of money to keep a museum running, from the utilities to the salaries of the employees. Donations help cover these costs and allow the museum to continue providing educational opportunities to the public.
In addition, donations help history museums expand their collections and develop new exhibits. This is especially important for small or regional museums that might not otherwise have the resources to do so. By supporting history museums with your donations, you are helping them preserve our past and share it with future generations.
