Legacy giving

Supporters sharing their passion for the Museum with their grandson

Why support us?

'Your support will help us to use our collection to explore our origins; to understand the impact of humanity on our living planet; and to once again inspire future generations to seek to understand their place in the natural world.'

Professor Ian Owens, Director of Science

The Museum has been a place of excitement and discovery for generations. Your legacy can help us to keep it that way.

Leaving a gift to the Museum in your will helps us to develop a deeper understanding of the natural world and foster the knowledge, passion and urgency required to protect our precious environment. As a charity we rely on your generosity to continue our vital work.
