Support the Museum

We want as many people as possible to enjoy our free exhibitions, galleries, Rooms Through Time, gardens, and shop.

We are also part of a community we love and want to support. We are a registered Warm Bank, and from January 2023, we have run drop-in Free Tea Fridays to give those who need a safe and warm place to meet other people. We host Hackney Foodbank on Mondays at the Museum.

Your donation could make all the difference. With costs rising and being a free Museum, any gift you can make to sustain what we do will be appreciated.
