Members’ appeal

This year help us raise £100,000 to complete vital conservation work on the British Museum's collection. Without the constant work of the conservation team, the collection would deteriorate, resulting in irreparable damage. Treasured objects such as the Lewis Chessmen, Great Court totem poles, and Andean textiles are among those in need of vital care. Your support means that they will receive it.
