Donations from private persons and other parties are the basis of the collections in the museums in Vaasa. The Ostrobothnian Museum is proud of the patron tradition in Vaasa.
Many rare and exceptional items belong to the museum collections that are collected by private persons. The Ostrobothnian Museum collects primarily works of art, items and photos, which are connected with the present collections of the museum or with Vaasa and the operating area of the museum, the historical Ostrobothnia.
Every donation is considered separately. The collection strategy of the museum has an effect on receiving a donation, but because of the small amount of storages it is sometimes necessary to turn down a donation although it is suitable for the museum.
Inquiries connected with donations should be sent to the museum director or the curator responsible for the collections. Meetings are always agreed in advance.
THE MUSEUM SHOP AND CAFÉ NOVA The museum’s publications, as well as literature and postcards, Ostrobothnian craft and design products are available for purchase at the museum shop. In the café there is a wide selection of coffees, as well as soft drinks, confectionary, cakes and pastries. The museum shop and Café Nova are open during the museum's opening hours.
