Legacy

A gift in your Will is a generous way to protect the collections and help the Museum inspire future generations.

Legacies of any size make a real difference to us. If you leave something to us in your will we spread it across these three vital areas of our work:

  • The Collections fund to support projects and activities directly relating to the collection, including conservation, acquisitions and interpretation.
  • The Current Projects fund to support a wider range of current projects, including exhibitions, activities to educate and inspire the Museum’s audiences, and developments that will improve the future sustainability of the organisation.
  • The Future fund secures the long-term future of the Museum and its collections by generating annual, unrestricted income. The aim over the next 10 to 20 years is to build an endowment fund of £2.5m which will benefit the museum for generations to come.

If there is a part of our work or collections that you are passionate about and want your legacy to support that area we would be happy to discuss this with you; contact us at [email protected].
