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 objects for the collection. in addition we continue to support the Walled Garden Project as it grows.  We support the purchase of planting/soft landscaping and are currently funding a new pergola for the Garden. For more information on this exciting project, please visit The Walled Garden. Your support is more important to us, the Museum and those that benefit from it. Thank you.
