Adopt an Item

You can now help us to care for the collections by adopting a museum item. Right now you can choose from thirty of our famous cow cream jugs and, whilst you won’t get to take them home (or put them out to pasture!), you will receive a special adoption pack as well as recognition of your generosity right here on the website.

To find out more about our adopt an item scheme – and how to purchase an adoption pack – visit our Adopt an Item page.

Museum Friends

Our museums depend upon a healthy Friends organisation. Donations and other monies raised by the Friends make a very real difference, supporting the development of facilities to increase the enjoyment of visitors or helping to purchase important items for the Museums’ collections.

Our Friends organise a lively programme of lectures, films, social events & visits to other museums, galleries & private collections. They also receive invitations to functions, openings and private viewings at the Museums, as well as the Friends Newsletter, mailed out three times per year.

To find out how you can become a Friend visit our Museum Friends page.
