Support Museums Worcestershire

Museums Worcestershire is a major heritage resource for the County of Worcestershire and West Midlands region. Although currently supported by Worcester City and County Councils, our three venues increasingly need public support to help them thrive for future generations.

The costs are high to keep our venues open to the public throughout the year, and to ensure they continue to be exciting destinations for family days out and group visits, as well as fascinating heritage learning centres for thousands of school children and students every year.

We therefore rely also on individual donations, corporate sponsorship and membership support to keep our unique buildings open; help us grow our collections from all eras of Worcestershire’s past; host nationally recognised artists at Worcester City Art Gallery & Museum; produce stunning large-scale heritage events at The Commandery; and develop new heritage displays at The County Museum at Hartlebury.

Without the generous support of individuals, businesses and grant-giving bodies, as well as visitors, volunteers and members, Museums Worcestershire would be unable to carry out our mission of preserving and presenting in innovative and accessible ways Worcestershire’s unique stories.
