Leaving a gift in your will

As a charity, our vision is to work together with audiences and communities to inspire, to share and to care for cultural heritage.

Leaving a gift to York Museums Trust in your Will is a wonderful way of ensuring that we can continue to share the wonderful collections, gardens, buildings and stories for generations to come.

With your help, we can ensure a sustainable future for York Museums Trust.
