Join the Abbey Museum Friends and become involved in this unique Museum’s growth and development.

The Abbey Museum Friends is a group of people who have been inspired and excited by the Museum’s remarkable collection of international fine arts and antiquities. Their support of the Abbey Museum is essential to the future and ongoing sustainability of the organisation and its ability to provide vital programs, activities and experiences for visitors.

The Friends host a program of social and cultural events, including lectures and educational forums. These events are always stimulating and enjoyed in the company of like-minded people.  They also organise fund-raising activities for the purchase of much needed equipment and artefacts. Join now.
