Help us raise funds for ‘Oxford Hidden Histories’ an exciting project to redevelop the Museum with new galleries, Museum Makers space and Learning Space.

Whether as a gift for a friend, project for a school group, or just for yourself; adopting an object is a wonderful way to support your local Museum.

Sponsorship varies from £25, £50 and £100 for one year’s adoption.

You will receive:

  • An adoption certificate
  • A digital image of your object which you may use as you wish (postcards, badges) as long as the Museum logo also appears
  • Your name alongside the object in our online gallery (optional)
  • An invitation to the new museum’s launch event

  • Look through the objects that are available to adopt online, and click on an object to find out more about it
