Since 1931, the Association of Friends has supported Birmingham Museums by raising money to help support everything from buying new acquisitions to funding important development capital programmes.

The Friends give around £15,000 a year to Birmingham Museums, raised through subscriptions, events, outings and donations.

To become a Friend of Birmingham Museums costs from as little as £21. As a part of the Friends you will enjoy many benefits, including the quarterly Artefacts magazine, and become part of a lively social circle that enjoys exclusive events and activities all year round.
