Visitors taking photos in the Workhouse Museum

Ripon Museum Trust is an independent educational charity with a large, committed team of volunteers, who are responsible for running three museums in heritage sites within the city. Admission and retail income is crucial to keep our buildings and collections in good condition and to offer visitors a great experience.

If you are able, please consider making a donation to help us continue our work – any amount large or small will help.

It costs us roughly £1,000 per day to preserve this important heritage for future generations and to share the important stories of poverty, law and order with our visitors.

You can donate by giving cash, cheque or an online payment via the box below.

Thank you for your donation!


Gift aid

Our museum tickets are eligible for gift aid and we ask eligible visitors to consider adding gift aid to their ticket purchase. This won’t cost you any more, but it allows us to claim an extra 25p for every £1 you spend.

Support us

Our supporters are vital in helping us preserve the important heritage at our three museum sites. Please consider making a donation to support our work.
