Friends of the Museum

The ‘Friends’

The “Friends of Crewkerne and District Museum” was set up in March 2001 to provide financial support and to promote long term interest in the Museum. Over the last 20 years the Friends have been invaluable to the long-term survival of the museum.

Looking to the future, The Museum will be working on new and sustainable projects and the friends support will be essential . One of these planned projects is to digitalise several of the Museum records and collections.  The Museum will be investing in touch screen technology which will show video, oral history and images of artefacts enabling us to tell local stories. Such an investment will allow us to broaden and increase our diversity of visitors.

In recognition of the friends support a “Funded by our Friends of the Museum & Heritage Centre” plaque will be displayed for all to see. For anyone who wants to make an additional financial contribution you will have the option of having your name added to our “Major Supporter List”. For more details contact us on or via our Facebook page or read the membership literature.
