Your support is vital and helps the Cowper & Newton Museum share it’s collection.


As a charity the Museum relies on donations. Gifts support the care, preservation, and display of our collections.

Every donation makes a real difference.

If you’re able, please support the Cowper & Newton Museum today.

Thank you.

Volunteer and Vacancies

Our museum is run by wonderful volunteers, reporting to the House Manager.

Our success is due to their enthusiasm and commitment. They welcome our visitors, serve in the shop, help conserve our artefacts, keep our gardens looking gorgeous, and raise funds through all sorts of special events.

Our volunteers receive full training and on-going support, invites to exclusive social events, and make a real contribution to one of Olney’s most significant tourist attractions.
