Donate to The Cowper & Newton Museum

As a charity your gifts support the care, preservation, and display of our collections.  The Cowper & Newton Museum opened in 1900, and it is our heartfelt wish that despite the pressures on us from the impact of COVID-19 we remain open for another 120 years or more . We are doing everything in our power to remain standing, weather the storm and keep the Museum alive and open to share the Cowper and Newton stories.

During lockdown and beyond, we have lost our main source of income – entry fees to the Museum. To help us through this difficult time, we ask that you consider assisting us to continue our valuable work through a donation, however small or large.

Every donation makes a real difference. If you’re able, please support the Cowper & Newton Museum today. Thank you.
