Monastery to Museum 900

Thank you to everyone who helped us to reach our matchfunding target in support of the major capital redevelopment project.

The museum opened in August 2016 and we have seen visitor numbers double - we hope that you are pleased with the your new museum!

Our goal is now to develop the rest of the site up to the same standard as the new museum by conserving and enhancing the walled garden.

Can you help?

A donation of any amount will be of great help, but there are a number of ways in which a donation can support specific elements of the project and also provide a dedication for you or a loved one:

£10 will help support the repointing and conservation of the Georgian walls around the stunning garden 

£60 will pay for your chosen name to be inscribed into the glass above the entranceway in the stunning new 'atrium' linking the undercroft with the redeveloped galleries.

Please contact us after your donation to inform us of your chosen name 

There are many other ways you may wish to make a dedication, so if there is another way in which you would like your donation recognised or to mark an occasion or a loved one, please contact us at 01928 569895 or email 

Donations of £60 include your chosen name inscribed in the glass above the new entrance of the redeveloped museum. 

If you would like to donate by post please make cheques payable to Norton Priory Museum Trust.

You might want to gift aid your donation. Under the Government’s Gift Aid scheme, Norton Priory Museum Trust (Charity number No 504870) can reclaim the tax made from the donation. This means that we can get 28% more money, at no extra cost to you.

If you are a UK tax payer, please complete the Gift Aid section on the donation form.
