Why help

Arundel Museum's collection include clothing, photographs, documents, artworks and objects found locally and donated from businesses in and around the town. Our treasures date from the first inhabitants of the surrounding area, through Roman occupation, Medieval religious buildings, a 'Piece of Eight' and Tudor coins, railway and Port of Arundel artefacts.

Many of our objects are centuries old and are in need of repair and conservation treatment. You can help to preserve Arundel's history for future generations. Your donation will go towards supporting  Arundel Museum's archive conservation and will help to fund research of the artefact, maintain and upkeep its display. Conservation work ranges from simple repairs to cleaning, treatment and the provision of protective boxes for vulnerable items.
