How can visitors support the Museum following the challenges of the last few years?

We are a registered charity which means that our funding does not come from government but from our supporters and visitors like you. There are many ways that you can support us, should you feel able to, to help us to secure the Museum’s future.

Ways you can support us

We’re incredibly grateful for the one-off donations which members of the public have made to help us at this time. Others have become regular supporters by committing to a monthly gift or by becoming a Friend. This is hugely appreciated and will help us share all that the Museum has to offer, now and into the future.


Visitors can also support their Museum and help us to share the art and stories of the river by volunteering with us! Volunteering with us is a chance to try something new, share expertise, develop your skills, gain experience and contribute to our charitable work. Fans of the Museum can become part of our supportive team with flexible opportunities from giving a warm and friendly welcome to visitors to behind-the-scenes projects. Benefits of volunteering include free admission to the Museum, discounts in the Museum’s Café and Shop as well as on workshops and Museum events and more. Find out more here:
