Support Us

Although the Museum is owned and run by a Charitable Trust, it depends on donations and the support it receives from its Friends. To make a donation please click on the Donate Now button which will take you to our JustGiving page. You can also make a contactless donation at the museum.

You may become a ‘Friend’ for a year with a subscription of £10. This should be sent to our Hon. Treasurer at the Museum. Your subscription will help to run a valuable local resource and you will also be invited to various special events, such as previews of exhibitions, during each year. An occasional newsletter – Musenews – is published giving details of forthcoming exhibitions and events. To become a Friend of the museum please click on the Download Form button.

You can also give membership to friends and family. Pop into the Museum and ask for a Membership Gift Card to give one year’s membership subscription to someone and support your local museum.

Recent events have included a visit by HRH Prince Edward Duke of Kent, lectures by Matthew Pease, Tom Kitchin, Lord Wheatley and Sir George Reid, a Strawberry Tea and outings to Abbotsford, The Transport Museum, The Burns Museum at Alloway, the Scottish Parliament, the Japanese Gardens at Cowden and the V&A Museum in Dundee.
