Additional help

You will get an email when you place a bid or are outbid. If you are NOT getting these emails, please check your “spam” folder for emails from “betterworld” and mark as ‘not spam’.

Troubleshooting: when logging in, if the arrow keeps spinning, refresh the page by hitting the F5 key – you should see a little person icon in the upper right corner. You should now be logged in.

Better World partners with the Museum to provide this auction website for free! Please note there is a “tip box” to help compensate Better World in lieu of a fee. However, please be sure to remove the check on transactions if you do not wish to provide a tip.

Volunteers will be available during the auction to assist you. Please send an email and someone will contact you as soon as possible.
