Become a Patron


The Bowes Museum has  transformed itself over the past decade with investment from Heritage Lottery Fund, private donors and Trusts and Foundations. It is a Museum of outstanding quality, displaying collections and programming inspiring exhibitions within a beautiful, purpose-built, Grade I listed building set in 23 acres of extensive parkland. Its’ progress has been remarkable, moving from a Museum faced with seasonal closure in 1999, to an engaging centre for learning and research today.

It is sometimes forgotten that The Bowes Museum is a charity and that it relies on funding and donations in order to continue its care for the collections, building and grounds as well as striving to display a rich and diverse exhibition and education programmes.

We would like to invite you to support the Museum by joining our exclusive Patrons Scheme.

With an annual gift of at least £500 you will be giving substantial and direct support towards securing the future of the Museum, enabling it to continue to operate as a world class institution and further develop its exhibitions, education programme, conservation and aim to become a centre of research and excellence.
In recognition of your support you will receive special privileges and exclusive access to areas of the Museum not usually available to the general public.

These include:

  • Invitations to a series of events led by the Director and curatorial team
  • Exclusive private views to exhibitions before the preview
  • Free exhibition catalogues
  • Credit on the website
  • An invitation to a behind the scenes tour of the Museum with an opportunity to interact with Museum objects.
We do hope you will take up this opportunity to become a more exclusive supporter of The Bowes Museum and look forward to seeing you at our private views and events. In so doing, you will be helping to secure the history of The Bowes Museum for future generations.

For any enquries please contact Alison Nicholson, Fundraising Officer at alison.nicholson@thebowesmuseum.org.uk or 01833 690606 ext 217.

The Bowes Museum is closed!


All of us at The Bowes Museum are really sad to announce that we have had to close until Wednesday 2 December in line with new national restrictions.

As a result, we have been forced to cancel events that were due to take place during this time. If you have a ticket for an event or entry to the Museum before this date, you will be contacted to arrange a refund or to make an alternative booking. All Christmas activities including the Christmas Market and Santa’s Grotto are expected to go ahead as planned.

Happily, we are still able to welcome walkers and cyclists to the Park and Gardens as usual, including the Playground area, and cars will be admitted between 10.00 and 4.00 daily.

We have so loved welcoming people into the building again, safely enjoying our displays, eating in Café Bowes and browsing in our shop, so please in the meantime keep safe and we hope to see you back again soon.
