Get involved with the museum

As a charitable organisation, we rely on your generosity to help safeguard The Cromwell Museum and to ensure that the story of Oliver Cromwell – his life, times and influence on modern democracy – is kept alive and is shared with as many people as possible. There are many ways you can help support The Cromwell Museum Trust including making a donation, adopting an object, becoming a member, and volunteering with us.



The Cromwell Museum Trust as an independent museum does not receive central government funding, and depends on donations from our visitors and interested parties to help fund our activities. Read more
