Become a Patron

Our Patrons are a community of donors who play an invaluable role in driving forward the Imperial War Museums’ vision of creating a more informed, educated, and socially-engaged society.

They understand that, as global citizens, all of our lives are affected by conflict. Their philanthropic support allows us to engage with our 2.4 million visitors each year through ambitious new galleries, thought-provoking exhibitions, dynamic learning programmes and unique public events, such as our monthly Conflict Café series.

As a thank you for their generosity, Patrons are invited to get closer to our work through a frequent and varied events programme. This includes curator-led talks, out-of-hours private views, behind-the-scenes tours of historical sites, as well as our lectures that enable Patrons to deepen their knowledge of social history and current affairs. 

"The chance to delve deeper is a highlight of becoming more involved with the museum. It opens windows and gives us a glimpse into a world that we wouldn't be able to access."
Brigid and Romen Bose, Patrons
