The Friends of The Museum in the Park is a charitable trust which aims to support the work of the Museum and to promote interest in all aspects of the Museum's work.

We fundraise to support Museum projects and the acquisition of new objects for the collection. Our most recent high profile fundraising has been for the Walled Garden Project.  We continue to support the purchase of planting/soft landscaping for the Garden. For more information on the exciting Walled Garden click here. Your support is very important to us, the Museum and all those that benefit from it. Thank you.

Did you know?

In addition to the recent Walled Garden Project, the Museum Friends have had several successful fundraising projects, including the installation of the Museum's donation box (automaton) and funding the much used cafe seating in the Museum courtyard.

Support Us

We continue to fundraise for the Walled Garden Project, namely to support the ongoing planting. You can support the project in many ways by attending events, donations or by purchasing a limited edition artist print of the Garden Gate.
