Remembering the Museum in your Will

Why support us?

'The Natural History Museum is one of my favourite places in London. I would encourage anyone who has an interest in supporting an institution that works for the benefit of our planet to leave a legacy to the Museum.'

Jasmina Ljuhar, legacy supporter

By leaving a gift to the Museum in your Will, you could help advance the science of nature for the benefit of today's society and future generations.

Your gift will help challenge the way people think about the natural world, as well as tackle problems facing our planet, both now and in the future.

By supporting the Museum in your Will, you'll be there alongside our scientists, helping their search for solutions to climate change, food poverty and disease migration.

You will help to ensure that future generations continue to enjoy the Museum that you know and love, and inspire the next generation of conservationists, environmentalists and natural scientists to continue this vital work.

Home visits are conducted by a trained professional, who pass your instructions to the panel solicitor who will provide your Will.
