There are many ways to support our Museum. You can join our Friends of the Museummake a donation or volunteer for us! We appreciate any and all contributions.

The Vale & Downland Museum Centre formally opened in 1983 and major improvements to the main gallery were completed in 1999. In the mid 1970s, the newly-formed Vale of White Horse District Council bought the site and leased it to the museum trust. Entry to the Museum is free but we ask visitors  to consider making a donation in the box provided. The Museum relies on the generosity of its visitors and Friends to ensure it remains open.
