In return for the benefits your membership gives you, your donation helps us with our restoration, conservation and education programmes, so that we can preserve the maritime heritage for future generations.

As an independent museum we receive no revenue funding from the government and rely on people like you to enable us to continue our work.

We want everyone to enjoy their visit; our collections to inspire and challenge with new and exciting displays; and for the Museum to continue evolving as a world class visitor destination.

With your help we will continue to develop, excite and educate.  We would like you to become part of our future and join us on this journey.

Corporate Founder Members

The money we raise through these partnerships makes an invaluable contribution to enhancing our displays and meeting our financial responsibilities. See our Corporate Founder Members.
