The museum is happy to answer questions about New Britain, its history and industry and questions you may have about items made in New Britain.  Unfortunately the museum cannot provide you with an appraisal or estimate the value of an object.

If you need a formal written appraisal for tax or insurance purposes, please contact the Appraisers Association of America.

If you are looking for a verbal appraisal/general sense of what an item is worth-sometimes auction houses have a free appraisal day/event where you can get a verbal appraisal of 1 or 2 items. You can also look for appraisal fairs hosted by antique shops, historic homes/museums or libraries where, for a fee, you can have an item appraised.
