As a non-profit, state-affiliated institution, the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology is not able to provide appraisals or authentication services for artifacts or art objects.
To find information on individuals or companies near you who perform appraisals, your best option is to contact a local art or history museum that is not funded in part by the state of Michigan.
