A Message from our Chair, Hilary Simpson:
Cheltenham’s only independent museum is emerging from the pandemic with a new identity and an ambitious new focus. We’re the only historic house in Cheltenham which is open to the public – and of course we have the unique Holst factor. There are more exciting developments in the pipeline and we need your support to deliver them. It costs over £100 a day to keep the Museum open – you can help by making a donation, becoming a Friend, volunteering or leaving us a gift in your will.
Make a donation to the Museum. Click on the buttons to donate one of the amounts below, or an amount of your own choosing (min £1). If you are a UK taxpayer you will also be able to gift-aid these donations, giving us £1.25 for every £ you donate.
We are currently seeking funds for a new light reader and tiny tag environmental monitors to maintain our collections for future generations.
