Why leave a gift in your will?

Leaving a bequest ensures that your support of those organisations important to you continues long into the future. A bequest from you to support Royal Museums Greenwich, no matter how large or small, will be warmly welcomed and gratefully remembered. 

Why support Royal Museums Greenwich?

Royal Museums Greenwich is home to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) and the Royal Observatory, Cutty Sark, the National Maritime Museum and the Queen's House; all located within a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Our unrivalled collections represent human endeavour across art, history and science and explore a view of our place in time and space that only Greenwich can offer.


Tailoring your gift

A gift can reflect your particular interests and passions and can be directed to specific areas of the museums’ work. These include:

  • Vital collections care
  • Acquisitions
  • Research activities
  • Learning and community programmes

How others have helped

I believe that preserving our heritage and protecting museums for future generations is a very worthy cause.
