See your memorabilia in the forthcoming Museum of Utah

Jan. 31, 2024 – The Utah Historical Society requests donations to the Celebrations gallery.

The Museum of Utah is slated to open in 2026 on Utah’s Capitol Complex under the umbrella of the Utah Historical Society. As Utah’s first state history museum, the Museum of Utah will celebrate our unique history, culture and art through world class exhibits, programming, and community spaces. 

Celebrations will be an interactive space within the Museum’s larger Connecting Utah gallery, helping illustrate Utah’s sense of community, identity, and thriving culture through ephemera and memorabilia. The Celebrations gallery allows us to highlight the unique special events and gatherings that take place within various communities across the state.

Help us preserve and share the history of Utah’s special events and gatherings by donating your ephemera and memorabilia to the Museum of Utah. This is an opportunity for all Utahns to see themselves, their communities, and unique celebrations reflected in one space, creating a sense of interconnectedness and shared interests among Museum visitors. 

The gallery will consist of historical celebratory ephemera and memorabilia, such as: event posters, pins, clothing, trophies, ribbons, and more. If you are interested in donating relevant items to this collection, please fill out the interest form below and a member of our team will contact you.
