Researcher Information

How do you research the collection?

Appointments are required for viewing museum collections. Access to materials is dependent upon their physical condition and level of processing by the park staff.

Researchers are encouraged to complete preliminary research before their visit. Limited space and staff affect our ability to accommodate researchers. We ask that researchers focus on materials only available in the park’s collection.


To access the collections for research please follow these steps:

  1. Submit a research request detailing their research project. (Download the Research Request Form)
  2. Confirm your appointment.
  3. Read and sign the Access Policy when you arrive at the park or before copies are sent to you.


An appointment is required to visit the museum collection. The collection is generally available for appointments:

  • Monday thru Friday: 9 am - 4 pm

  • Closed Federal holidays.
