Like all Registered Museums the London Canal Museum disposes of artifacts only if absolutely necessary. If however there is to be improvement, this sometimes means that things which were previously on display can no longer be accommodated. (We have very little storage space) We adhere to the Museums Association Code of Ethics on Disposal. This means that artifacts we no longer require, and are unable to store, are offered first to UK Registered Museums, free of charge. Only if all other avenues had been exhausted would an artifact be destroyed.
In respect of items other than artifacts we seek to be a responsible, environmentally aware organisation and to dispose thoughtfully of unwanted items which are not museum artifacts such as old furniture, materials, or equipment.
On this page you will see details of what we are offering, free of charge to good homes. Artifacts are only offered to UK Registered Museums in the first instance but expressions of interest from non-registered museums or other good homes will be welcome and will be held on file in case no Registered Museum is interested. Other items are offered to any organisation, with museums, charities, and community groups especially encouraged to get in touch. In all cases the items are offered free of charge, but the recipient will have to arrange and pay for transport.
Book case in good condition, wood veneer effect. Width 31.5 inches, depth 11inches, height 6 feet 8 inches. Suitable for library or office use. Available to any good cause, this is not restricted to registered museums as this is just a piece of furniture not an artifact.
We have a couple of older Pentium computers and monitors available for disposal.
