“One of the best museums outside London” – a visitors comment (May 2010).
The generous support from members of the public is vital to our continued success. Any level of donation is very helpful and much appreciated.
Field Marshal BL Montgomery officially opened St John’s House as a Museum on the 2nd August 1961. We are a small charitable museum (charity No. 272357) that receives no support from the local authority. The museum interprets the history and traditions of the Regiment from 1674 to today. The museum aims to preserve the unique collection in perpetuity. The Museum reopened in 2001 following a major redisplay thanks to the generous support given to the Museum Appeal, a Heritage Lottery Fund grant and a kind donation from the King Henry VIII Charity.
If you feel able to make a gift to the museum, it would help to ensure that the Museum can be enjoyed by future generations. Make a contribution today, it is quick and simple to do online, but will make a big difference to us. Donations are usually allocated to different areas according to where it is needed, such as school education services, family events, buying new acquisitions, producing displays or caring for the collection. However, if you would prefer to make a donation to a specific exhibition or project please contact us to discuss some options with you.
