Your donations make a difference

We are always incredibly grateful for your support, and now we need it more than ever. Our charity relies on visitor donations to help deliver the amazing work we do and our closure due to coronavirus has had, and continues to have a significant impact on our charitable income.

Whether you love our stuffed animals, mummies or old masters, or are inspired by our working exhibits, historic houses or archives, show you care by making a donation to Bristol Museums Development Trust.

Bristol Museums Development Trust is a registered charity (no. 1137777) that raises funds for the work done by all the team across Bristol Museums and Archives. Your donation will help us care for more of the treasures in our collections, run our exciting learning and engagement programmes, as well as continue to put on world-class exhibitions across all our sites. Thank you
