Become a Guardian of Colchester Museums For Life. 

Our Guardian For Life Members help us to protect and preserve Colchester's heritage by providing the vital support that we need to look after Colchester Castle, Hollytrees Museum, the Natural History Museum, and the thousands of items in our collection. 

Colchester Museums Development Foundation is a registered charity (number 1192018). CMDF exists to support Colchester Museums to inspire and enrich our local community, through the preservation, exploration, and sharing of the town's heritage in its widest sense. 


I am a UK taxpayer and understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year it is my responsibility to pay any difference.
