Levels of Patronage

We have five levels of patronage to choose from. Each one is designed to bring you closer to the heart of the Museum, its collections and the people behind the scenes.

In appreciation of your generous support we offer exclusive access to the Science Museum and our experts, as well as a tailor-made programme of events and use of our exclusive venue, the Smith Centre. Your support will be recognised in the Smith Centre, the Museum’s Annual Report and on the Science Museum donor recognition board, which will be seen by nearly 3 million visitors yearly. You will also receive regular updates from the Patrons Office.
