The Museum collects objects and specimens pertaining to the prehistory, history and natural history of the White Rock area. The Museum is committed to professional standards of documentation, preservation, research, exhibition and interpretation of its collections.
The Museum maintains two collections, a permanent collection and a teaching collection. The permanent collection is maximized through in-house exhibitions and programs, while the teaching collection is used for public programs and school groups.
Donations are the main method of expanding the Museum's collections. Donations encourage community involvement and an awareness of the museum as a safe repository for heritage objects. The Museum is currently seeking material that covers the time period of 1900-1960.
