The Wilson – a place where everyone is welcome.
Monetary donations no matter how small contributes to the legacy of The Wilson – Cheltenham’s local art gallery and museum. As a charity The Wilson needs your support to continue to open its doors and provide enriching experiences for residents and visitors alike. It costs over £700,000 to run The Wilson Art Gallery and Museum each year, this enables us to provide high quality exhibitions, fascinating displays of our collection and enriching learning activity for all ages.
So to continue to be able to open our doors for generations to come we need your support.
Be inspired by the likes of the Baron de Ferrieres who kicked off the art Gallery side of The Wilson with a donation of 43 Dutch and Flemish Masters from the 17th century and £1000 in 1898; and Dr Edward Thomas Wilson who petitioned and helped open the Museum aspect of the gallery in 1907.
In the words of Dr Edward Thomas Wilson the museum “must have in it the inherent power of expansion and development” and a donation from you can make that possible.
