Make a Donation

Admission to Barnsley Museums is free of charge and we ask for donations to enable the museums to create access to the collections, retell Barnsley’s stories and provide wonderful things to do for people of all ages.

You can make a donation securely online, on your visit to one of our museum sites in a donation envelope or by completing a donation form on site and returning it to one of the museums’ staff.

When making your donation please don’t forget to check the box to ensure we can claim the Gift Aid as part of your donation.

Gift Aid makes such a big difference
Gift Aid is a terrific way to make your donation go further. If you are a UK taxpayer and choose Gift Aid, Barnsley Museums & Heritage Trust can claim up to 25% of this gift and all future gifts from HM Revenue and Customs. So for every £1 that you give, BMHT will receive an extra 25p. All at no extra cost to you.
