Donate to our charity

We are an independent museum and receive no regular local or national financial support, we have to raise all our own income and pay our own bills, maintain our buildings and stay open. The running costs of the Museum are over £1000 a day.

The current Covid-19 situation is a very worrying time for the Museum. If you would like to support us during this challenging time and help us protect the Museum and the conservation work that has been carried out over the last 40 years then please consider making a donation or buying an Annual Pass.
