The Museum is run almost entirely by our team of over 50 volunteers. In addition, there are three members of staff: the manager, part-time administrator and Saturday assistant.  Running costs (staff, heating and lighting, repairs, etc.) amount to over £60,000 per year, over half of which has to be raised through donations, successful grant applications and other fund-raising activities.  Although we do not charge an entry fee, your donations, however small, are greatly appreciated.  Click here to find out how you can help support the work we do with schools and helping local organisations.

When making your Will, you may wish to leave a legacy to support the work of a charity.

At Nantwich Museum we seek to tell the story of the town’s rich history using our collections which are held in trust for the community and to provide a centre for the inspiration, learning and enjoyment of all. We aim to serve the local community by providing a learning service and Dementia Friendship Group.

The Museum is an independent charitable trust dependent on grants, donations, commercial activities and sponsorship.

A legacy could be used to:

  • Maintain the Museum’s collection
  • Enable the purchase of significant local artefacts
  • Fund exhibitions and events
  • Finance capital projects such as new display cases, lighting systems etc.
