Donate

A ‘Give What You Can’ donation has replaced our admissions charge to the Silk Museum to encourage more people to visit more often.

We suggest a voluntary donation of £3 per person.

Your donations supports our work within the museum and with local schools & communities in the surrounding area.


If you’re eligible, opting for Gift Aid Admission is a great way to support our work as it includes a 10% donation, allowing us to reclaim 25p of every £1 you spend with us.

Explanation of Eligibility:

In order to be eligible, you must be a UK taxpayer and pay an amount of Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax for the current tax year that is at least equal to the amount that all the charities you donate to will reclaim on your donation. Other taxes such as VAT and Council Tax do not qualify.

It is your responsibility to pay any difference if you pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all your charitable donations.
