It will take time, and money

The National Lottery Heritage Fund has decided the vision is worthy of national priority and has confirmed a grant of £11.34m, leaving the Museum a fundraising target of £3.9m. Great progress has been made – funds of £3.2m have already been raised from Trusts and Foundations, local authorities and generous individual donors. This is where we need your help. We need to raise £753,000 as quickly as possible to see the project through to completion.

The Museum relies on the dedication of its wonderful volunteers to run all aspects of museum life. Whilst we build your new Museum, we will not be recruiting any additional volunteers. However, there will be plenty of exciting opportunities to work at the Museum when we reopen in 2021. Please sign up below, to be the first to hear about new volunteering opportunities.
