Carbon County Museum accepts research requests pertaining to Carbon County people, places, and history. Archival staff will search birth, death, and marriage records upon request. Our Research Finding Aid provides a listing of topics covered by our research files.
The first hour of every research request is free; every hour after the first hour is $15. Carbon County Museum will respond as soon as possible with a list of the types of materials in our collection that meet submitted research criteria. Fees for reproduction and publishing requirements are based on the museum's Copy/Processing Fee Schedule, Photograph Collection Use Fees, and the Permission to Publish Contract.

The Collections Management Policies (CMP) for the Carbon County Museum is a document reviewed and approved by the Board that outlines the Museum's collecting strategies and the rules its staff must follow when dealing with its collections. This document is available for download in the "Archives & Research Policy Documents" section below. As the Museum holds its collections in public trust, it believes that information about how it manages its collections should be available to the public it serves.
