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 supported the Museum and Art Gallery Trust when they submitted an HLF bid to help build a new museum and art gallery in the centre of town beside the Wyvern Theatre. This was sadly turned down by the HLF, and alternative options are being explored; we should know the results of this options appraisal by September 2018.

Benefits of being a Friend include reduced price entry to talks, trips, meeting like minded people, receiving 3 copies of our Journal, being more involved in the museum 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/ £20 joint membership.
