Why should I Adopt an Object?

Adopt an Object and help care for your favourite collections at Birmingham Museums and Art Gallery. By making a donation and adopting an object, you will help us care for our collection, preserve local and national heritage, and inspire thousands of people every year. Whether your passion is for Pre-Raphaelite art or ancient civilisations, we hope you will get involved and Adopt an Object for yourself or as a unique gift for your friends and family.

How can I Adopt an Object?

Each object or artwork has a minimum suggested donation for you to make - from £10 to £5,000. As a thank you for your donation, you will receive a variety of benefits including a certificate of adoption, an information sheet on your object, and a fridge magnet photo of your object as a permanent memento. We'll credit you on our website and for the larger donations you will also receive invitations to exclusive Private Viewings and a print of your image.

And, of course, you can come and visit your object at the museum whenever it's on display.

Within each category you can see the benefits that apply.
