Research at The Williamson Museum
At this time, The Williamson Museum cannot accommodate on-site research requests. If you would like to look through the database, please feel free to contact the Curator and set up an appointment to come by the Museum during our open hours. However, please be aware that physical access to the collection is only available by appointment.
A fee-based collection research service is available for research into our collections. Fees are calculated at the hourly rate of $35.00 per hour charged by the half hour after an initial free 30 minutes. Photocopies are 20 cents per sheet.
Requests for information should be as specific as possible. Museum staff will make a search of the holdings in response to inquiries. Response time depends on the complexity of the subject matter. Routine research inquiries and photocopy requests will normally be completed in 3 weeks. For other requests, Museum staff can provide an estimate of the research time needed. This estimate is subject to revision, based on staff workloads.
The Museum makes no warranties or guarantees either expressed or implied concerning the accuracy or authenticity of information from current books, periodicals, magazines, or other source material, which is allegedly based on historical research; or the accuracy of information as published in original journals, magazines, catalogs, or other source material used to supply the requested information. Any person or entity requesting research services will hold harmless The Williamson Museum, its staff and volunteers from any legal claims or damages arising from or out of any information provided as a result of the Museum's research service.
