For research, we do require that a research request is filled out. The purpose of the research request is to be able to get all of the information you are looking for, and to efficiently handle your request.


If you are planning on coming to the museum in person, please contact us ahead of time to reserve a spot.


As we are receiving an ongoing stream of request the time and date section must be completed to be accepted. In the detail section fill out as much information as possible related to your request, things like; name, dates, locations, titles, and aliases are very helpful to our researchers.

Fill out your Online Research Request Form.

There is a $20 charge for the first hour of research and $10/hour thereafter. There are also additional charges for photos, photocopies, and or prints. Our goal is to get back to you within two (2) weeks with the information from your research requests, however times are subject to change.
