The Freeport Art Museum Does Not offer Appraisals
The Freeport Art Museum cannot appraise artifacts, paintings or other works of art, nor can we recommend a specific appraiser. As a Not-For-Profit organization, the Freeport Art Museum is legally obligated to refrain from such recommendations as they could be considered a conflict of interest.
A professional appraiser is the best qualified person to help determine the value of works in your collection. Please note that most appraisers will charge a fee for their services.
Although museum standards prohibit FAM staff from making specific recommendations, we can offer the following list of national organizations to help you in your search for a qualified professional appraiser.
