We preserve our collections for the enjoyment and discovery of all. While a significant number of our services are free, including all  museum visits, we’re always incredibly grateful when anybody chooses to support or contribute to our ongoing work. There are many ways that this can be done.

  • Our museums and collections are home to a thriving volunteering community. To explore the opportunities that we have available, or simply get in touch, head to our volunteering page.
  • Do you have a collection or objects that you would like to donate? Find contact details for our curators on our contact page.
  • Cash donations are an incredibly important source of income for us, as we always look to extend our offer and add to our public programme. If you’d like to make a kind donation, please donate via the University of Reading’s Alumni and Supporters web page and remember to specify the Museum or Collection you would like to support.
