He Taituarā – Greater Support

The Whanganui Regional Museum is a charitable trust, dependent on public funding and donations to carry out its work. 

Support from donors is vital to the running of the museum, care of the collection and developing ongoing exhibitions and programmes.

If you would like to talk with the Director about making a larger donation or bequeath, or about sponsorship please contact us today.

We welcome your support.
