The Museum enjoys a close partnership with many companies which have assisted in different ways.

Between them our corporate supporters have committed funds of over £400,000 and others have sponsored individual exhibitions and events. The money we raise through these partnerships makes an invaluable contribution to enhancing our displays and meeting our financial responsibilities.
