Museum Africa's Curatorial and Archival Services is not a public archives or reference library. Our Curatorial Department staff is trained to provide historical information about ancient African civilizations. Artifact information on objects in the museum's collections is also available.
Inquiries should be submitted in writing to the Curatorial Department. Requests will be handled as time permits, and may be subject to research fees and costs for photocopying and mailing.
If your request is expected to take more than fifteen minutes of staff time to research, you will be notified before any research is initiated. Research fees will be billed at $15.00 for each quarter of an hour of staff time beyond the first fifteen minutes. Research fees collected help underwrite the high cost of caring for Museum Africa’s valuable collections.
