Leave a gift in your will

Find out how a gift to the Science Museum in your will can create a long-lasting legacy and inspire future generations of scientists.

What will a child visiting the Science Museum today go on to do; will they walk through our Exploring Space gallery and be inspired to become an astronautical engineer? Will they watch in awe at the Wonderlab Chemistry Bar and gain a lifelong passion? The Science Museum is dedicated to inspiring futures, and by leaving the Museum a gift in your will you’ll be supporting all the wonderful advancements these futures can bring.

Your legacy

Supporting us helps to ensure that your love for the sciences will have a long-lasting, positive impact on the millions of visitors we welcome each year.

Our work

Children in Wonderlab

As the home of human ingenuity, we inspire visitors with award-winning exhibitions, iconic objects and stories of incredible scientific achievement. We are the custodians of our scientific past, yet we are also the UK’s foremost destination to explore the science that is constantly pushing new boundaries. We can’t do this without your support, which is why charitable gifts left to the Science Museum are invaluable.

Three gifts to consider

  • Residuary: The Science Museum will receive a percentage of the remainder of your estate once it has been distributed
  • Pecuniary: A specific sum of money left to the Science Museum which can be Index Linked
  • Specific: A specific item or items you wish to leave the Science Museum. This kind of Gift can also be included alongside a Pecuniary or Residuary Gift. Our Collections team would like to make sure we are able to fulfil your wishes, so please let us know about the item now
