Supporting the museum

The Wisbech & Fenland Museum is a charity and relies on your support. By supporting us through donations or volunteering, you are helping to fulfil our mission of making the Museum accessible to everyone.

Support from members of the public, companies and charitable organisations helps us to build and refurbish galleries, curate informative and engaging exhibitions, improve facilities, conserve and study the collection, buy objects and develop our learning and events programme.

Your local Museum needs you. Help make a difference today.
