York Museums Trust


Our collections are of national and international importance, and our museums and galleries welcome thousands of visitors each year. The challenge for us is to care for them and develop them for future generations.

We are a registered charity and work hard to secure successful funding applications to build on our core funding from local and national government.

Donations, endowments and bequests of any size are welcomed – any gift makes a difference. To discuss making a donation, please contact Charlotte Kindesjo (Head of Communications) on 01904 650325.


We are currently fundraising for the Wold Newton Hoard

The Wold Newton Hoard of more than 1,800 Roman coins was discovered by a metal detectorist near the village of Wold Newton, East Yorkshire, in 2014. Please click here to find out more.
