ABOUT THE MUSEUM

A:  The Museum does not disclose the monetary values of objects in its collections.

 
Q:  Can you tell me the value of a Karate history or Elvis history item that I own?

A:  The Museum does provide monetary appraisals. To determine the value of an object, contact us at Info@TigerManMuseum.org.  

 

 

CARING FOR HISTORIC ITEMS

 
Q. I have a Historic Item that has been in the family for years. How do I properly take care of it?

A. Historic Items like Textiles are inherently fragile and should be handled carefully, ideally historic costumes should not be worn or washed, they should be carefully stored in a stable environment and not exposed to light.

 
Q. You say I should “carefully store” the historic costume or item, what exactly does that mean?

A. Choose an area with minimal fluctuations in temperature and humidity, good air circulation and minimum of light – generally this means somewhere in the living area of the house rather than an attic, basement or garage. Garments can be stored either hanging or boxed. Any garment to be hung must have strong shoulder areas and should be stored on a padded hanger with a fabric cover. On the other hand, garments with sheer, lacy, or beaded fabrics, bias-cut sections, heavy skirts or trains should be stored horizontally in a box to avoid excess stress. All items coming in contact with the stored artifact should be acid-free – this includes the tissue paper used to stuff the item to prevent creases, cotton muslin to protect the garment from dust and light, and the storage box. Do not use plastic either as a garment bag or as wrapping inside the box because they release harmful chemicals and trap moisture, which can cause mold and mildew. 

 
Q: Where can I find archival quality boxes and supplies so I can safely store my vintage garments?

A: The following are the suppliers that the Museum uses for such materials as acid-free boxes and tissue paper:
