Home Support Us

Everything that we do at the Holburne Museum – from the exciting displays of our paintings, sculpture and decorative arts, to our exhibitions, contemporary art installations, community and learning activities – is founded on our guiding principle that enjoyment of the arts changes people’s lives. There are many ways that you can support us, helping us to remain free to enter and to continue changing lives through art.

What your gift achieves

It is through the generosity of individuals, corporate organisations and trusts and foundations that the Holburne Museum is able to open its doors to thousands of visitors each year at no charge.  We hope that we will be in a position to do so for many years to come.

Each gift received, no matter how large or small, will mean that you too are helping to enrich the minds and lives of our community. Through our education programmes for babies in arms, toddlers, primary school children, working with teenagers, providing stimulating programmes for people with dementia, the homeless, and working with several charities in our community, we believe that we are making a difference.

There are many ways you can choose to support the Holburne. Please explore the options below to see how you can play a role in our dynamic Museum.
