Donations, Bequests & Legacies

Help the Musical Museum survive! We are eternally grateful to all of our visitors and benefactors, who contribute towards the wellbeing of the Museum.

Become a Patron

As an independent charity we are not underwritten financially. We rely on donations, admission fees and events to raise revenue and preserve our collections for the benefit of future generations.

Our Patrons support the Museum by subscribing from just £3 per month; this income is then used to fund the operation of the Museum and the achievement of our charitable objectives. In return, we offer a number of rewards including access to live streams of concerts, free tickets, and more. 

Alternatively, you can also apply for annual membership of the Museum, which gives you a direct say in the way that the Trust operates, as well as free admission to the Musical Museum (and the Museum of Water and Steam) for a year.
