Friends of the Museum

St Neots Museum is very largely run by a friendly and dedicated group of volunteers, with the part time Curator and Learning and Access Officer organising the management of the collections and the learning activities.

The success of the museum over the last 20 years has been achieved through the hard work and commitment of Friends, staff and volunteers working together with our many local benefactors.

To secure the future of St Neots Museum we need to grow and develop and we need more Friends to help us achieve our aims.
