As an independent museum and registered charity, we rely entirely on ticket sales, shop sales and donations. Your donation goes directly to supporting the museum, and our educational aims.
You can also support us at no cost using easyfundraising If you shop online with Amazon, Tesco, John Lewis and thousands more you can help via the easyfundraising.org.uk website. It is very easy to set up and very easy to use. For each online purchase you make, the retailer donates a small percentage to the museum. It costs nothing more than shopping directly and you can feel good about making donations to a worthy cause.
