We are extremely proud to be an independent, educational charity and we don’t receive any regular public funding. However, this means that we have to raise  all of our funding requirements  through things like admission fees, our shops and cafes and generous donations from our visitors and supporters.

But did you know it costs over £10,000 a day to run the Museum?  To enable us to  continue to preserve and display our unique historic collections for  generations to come, we need your support now more than ever.
