Since legal reasons prevent Rockford Art Museum staff from appraising artwork, a professional appraiser is the best qualified person to help you determine the value of works in your art collection. Please note that most appraisers will charge a fee for their service.
Although museum standards prohibit RAM staff from making specific recommendations, we can offer the following list of national organizations to help you in your search for a qualified professional appraiser.
