Care of Sporting Material

The National Sports Museum does not undertake conservation work. The Australian Institute for the Conservation of Cultural Material (AICCM) (Inc.) is the professional body for conservators in Australia.

The AICCM website has a listing of conservators trained in material conservation who may be able to undertake conservation work for you and provide advice on the care of your collection.


The National Sports Museum is unable to provide formal or informal valuations on objects.

Contact information for valuers can be found in PDF format at the Australian Government’s Cultural Gifts Program website.

The Cultural Gifts Program provides tax incentives to encourage gifts of culturally significant items from private collections to public art galleries, museums, libraries and archives.
