Help to build the Museum's future
We hope to raise £100,000 from individuals like you in order to help complete the project.
The new centre will provide a new exhibition gallery, state-of-the-art laboratories and studios, world class stores for the study collection, as well as facilities to support the Museum’s extensive UK and international loan programme.
Construction of the WCEC is due to be completed in late 2013. So far the Museum has raised 88% of the funding it needs to complete this ambitious capital project including a grant of £10 million from the Heritage Lottery Fund; however, as we enter the final phase of the build we need your help. We hope to raise £100,000 from individuals like you in order to help complete the project. Please consider supporting this appeal today.
