The Friends of Swindon Museum and Art Gallery (FSMAG) is a voluntary organisation which helps to promote and support the museum & art gallery, its activities, raise funds towards new acquisitions and restoration of items in the collections.

We are currently working and supporting the Museum and Art Gallery Trust on submitting a HLF bid to help build a new museum and art gallery in the centre of town beside the Wyvern Theatre.  There probably has never been a more exciting time to be involved with the museum and art gallery, and we’re encouraging people to pledge their support for the idea of the new museum by joining the Friends and visiting the Trust website and signing up to receive their newsletters.

Benefits of being a Friend include reduced price entry to talks, trips, meeting new people, being more involved with the new project and a chance to work as a volunteer at the museum.

To become a Friend you can join online by clicking the link below, click for a form to print, or visit the gallery and pick up a form. £10 individual membership/ £15 joint membership.
