Appraisal Day

Do you have a family heirloom, work of art, or historical artifact that you want more information about? Local art and antique appraiser Don Butkovich will be at the Dennos Museum Center to verbally appraise your hidden treasures. Each person can bring one item per session at a fee of $10. Sessions are up to 15 minutes each. Each additional item requires registration for a separate session at an extra $10 fee. All proceeds support the Museum's education programming fund. Subscribe to our email newsletter for notification of upcoming Appraisal Days. Reservations are required. Register online or call (231) 995-1573.


We periodically offer lectures focusing on the arts and exhibitions as part of our exhibition openings for Museum Members. Learn more about becoming a Museum Member.
