There are many different ways to support Ely Museum from joining the Friends organisation to volunteering your time or donating financially. 

Ely Museum is an independent museum and registered charity (no.1156024) that exists to collect, exhibit, and interpret the unique history of the Isle of Ely and the people who lived here. Please consider supporting us by making a donation. 

If you are a UK taxpayer the Museum can claim Gift aid on your donation which means that the museum receives an extra 25%. Please complete and sign a Gift Aid declaration form and return to us.
