Become a sponsor

We are developing opportunities for sponsors and can tailor a programme of benefits to suit your needs. Business organisations can sponsor an entire exhibition, specific elements or one-off events and benefit from marketing opportunities connected with PR and promotion.

In return, we can offer exclusive access to the museum galleries for private events, product launches, staff training or company away days.

All our supporters and their guests can also enjoy invitations to private views and talks programmes.

Become a Friend

The Friends of SM&AG is an active and friendly society which welcomes new members and has an important role in the life of the museum. There is a range of activities including visits and talks. More information can be found on the Friends’ website.

Make a donation

Private donors can benefit from a special programme of activities and exclusive private view evenings. We also welcome bequests which will help to fund the on-going programme of museum development.
