Support two million years of global history and culture.
The British Museum is unique in bringing together the cultures of the world under one roof. Your donation will enable people from across the globe to explore humanity's extraordinary cultural achievements.
As a charity the Museum relies on donations. Gifts support the care, preservation and display of the collection, and make the inspirational work of our curators, conservators, scientists and educators possible.
As the Museum continues to be affected by the coronavirus pandemic, your support is vitally important. Donations provide immediate funds to enable us to make the collection and programmes accessible digitally during this challenging time and to welcome visitors back through our doors safely.
Every donation makes a real difference. If you're able, please support the Museum today. Thank you.
We are sheltering-in-place in California, and my wife and I went on a date to the British Museum's YouTube channel. Curator's Corner made our night really lovely! Thank you!Anonymous, May 2020
I love the range of the BM collections – the stories they tell of humanity, art, architecture and society. Membership allows me to be closer to the Museum and to support it.David, Member since 2008
