 Leave a Legacy

We are grateful to the many individuals who have left a gift in their will to Birmingham Museums Trust.  Leaving a legacy gift is one of the most enduring ways in which you can benefit Birmingham's museums and heritage sites.

Previous legacies have supported:

  • The publication of a beautifully illustrated and impeccably researched book to accompany the internationally successful 2011 exhibition The Poetry of Drawing, Pre-Raphaelite Designs, Studies & Watercolours.

  • The multi-million pound project 'Birmingham: its people, its history', with a new suite of galleries dedicated to telling the story of the history of Birmingham from prehistory to the present day.

  • The acquisition of an exquisite collection of silver church plate from Castle Bromwich parish church, and now on display at the newly refurbished Aston Hall.

In addition to monetary gifts, 25,000 items within our collection have been left to us as bequests.   

All legacy gifts are welcome, no matter how large or small, and could contribute towards acquiring new works, conserving the art and heritage in our care, groundbreaking temporary exhibitions, and significant capital projects.

If you would like to find out more about pledging a legacy gift, please see our leaving a legacy document, or contact us.

Any information you provide us with is strictly confidential and non-binding.
