|MUSKEGON, MI – The Muskegon Museum of Art (MMA) will host an Appraisal Fair on Saturday, October 16 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm at the museum. Appraisers from DuMouchelles Art Galleries in Detroit will be at the event to evaluate collectibles, jewelry, art, and antiques. DuMouchelles appraisers combine decades of professional experience in many areas and have regularly appeared on Antiques Roadshow.
The event provides an opportunity to help participants decide if a formal appraisal (apart from this event) should be sought for high-value items.
Appraisals will be available by advance ticket reservations only. Advance ticket sales should decrease wait times and crowding. The cost for tickets is $30 per item, or $20 per item for Muskegon Museum of Art members. Tickets can be purchased at the Museum Store counter, or over the phone by calling 231.720.2580.
Each ticket includes:
- 10-minute verbal evaluation for ONE item
- ONE museum admission (Additional admissions may be purchased in the Museum Store)
- Free coffee and cookies
Ticket holders must check in at Museum Store upon arrival. Customers will receive notification of their turn with a text message from museum staff.
All proceeds benefit the Muskegon Museum of Art.
Blue Lake Public Radio is the media sponsor for this event.
