Support Us

Did you know that the Horniman Museum and Gardens is a charity? Your support helps keep the Horniman open and running.

The Horniman makes a difference to people’s lives – it is a place where everyone can feel welcome, where they can learn, be amazed and have fun.

Generations of families from London and beyond have grown up with the us as a constant delight, inspiration and resource for life-long learning.

The Horniman is a registered charity and needs to find an additional £2 million to fund its running costs every year from generous supporters.

As well as enabling us to care for our collections and Gardens – and feed the alpacas – this money helps us put on exciting exhibitions and events throughout the year. It supports our work with some of south London’s most disadvantaged schoolchildren and marginalised groups.

We couldn’t do this without you and the support you give us.

And there are many ways to help. From making an online donation, becoming a Benefactor, holding a Great Walrus Tea Party or tapping to donate in the Museum. 

Find out how you can help support the Horniman and our work in these pages, from corporate sponsorship of an exhibition to leaving a lasting legacy in your will.
