The Friends of The Museum in the Park is a charitable trust which aims to support the work of the Museum and to promote interest in all aspects of the Museum's work.

We fundraise to support Museum projects and the acquisition of new pieces for the collection. Our present task is to raise £30,000 to support the next phase in the development and restoration of the Walled Garden Project. As we work towards achieving this important goal, your support is more important than ever. For more information on this exciting project, please visit The Walled Garden page.
