Birmingham Museums Trust is a registered charity [Charity number: 1147014].

We bring people’s stories alive through exhibitions, special events and activities. To do this we care for and share the city’s collection of over 1 million objects and artworks across nine museums and historic properties.

We are extremely grateful to our visitors, who continue to access our collections in huge numbers. You are the reason that we endeavour to provide the best experiences possible.

By donating an extra 10% or more on your single-entry ticket price or agreeing to Gift Aid your Annual Membership (at no extra cost to you), you allow Birmingham Museums Trust to claim the tax back on the whole amount paid as part of the Government’s Gift Aid Scheme. This means that we can claim 25p in every £1 you spend with us.

These vital extra funds help us to continue to fulfil our charitable role as your museum.
