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.

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.
