Abbey Museum Friends

The Abbey Museum Friends are a group of inspired supporters that wish to be more involved with what the Museum and all it has to offer, including its remarkable collections and engaging program of activities and experiences.

The history of the Abbey Museum and its collection of international fine arts and antiquities, continues to be a source of inspiration and awe to those who visit or attend our events.  We are very grateful that there are many talented and energetic people willing to offer their ongoing support to the Museum in different ways.  This support is essential to our growth, sustainability and ability to provide educational programs, activities and experiences for our visitors in accordance with the Museum’s vision and mission.

Join the Abbey Museum Friends and play an important role in preserving history and make a valuable contribution to our unique museum’s growth and ongoing development.
