The Fitzwilliam Museum was founded in 1816 from the bequest of Richard, seventh Viscount Fitzwilliam of Merrion, and the tradition of philanthropy has supported the Museum to flourish as a place of knowledge, inspiration and beauty ever since. Research, education, conservation, acquisitions, exhibitions and collections care have been made possible through acts of generosity.

We invite you to make a gift, support your Fitzwilliam and become part of the Museum’s story and its future.

Admission to the museum is free and we welcome 400,000 visitors per year through our doors, plus over 430,000 users to our website. We are a charity and rely on supporters and donors to help us achieve our purpose:

Thank you for your support.
