Muskegon Museum of Art’s annual Appraisal Fair returns October 16

The Muskegon Museum of Art 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.
