The Museum of Classical Archaeology is a small museum with limited resources. If you would like to help us to look after our artefacts and archives, to maintain our catalogues or to continue to offer education services and events, you could consider making a donation.
Sometimes, it's hard to see how your donation can make a difference. Here's what we might spend your money on:
£1 buys 1000 cocktail sticks for object cleaning (yes, really)
£5 buys basic craft materials for 15 children
£10 buys acid-free archival paper for protecting objects, papers and glass
£25 buys a fun toddler- or baby-safe toy for an activity box
£50 buys four archival boxes for storing paper materials
£100 buys two rolls of plastic sheeting for use in case of emergency
Admission to the Museum of Classical Archaeology is free. We don't charge for tours, education sessions or events – and we have no plans to do so. But if you have enjoyed your visit, we welcome your donations.
We are committed to using donations to expand and support our services and collections care.
