Friends of the Ashmolean
The Friends of the Ashmolean play an active and important role within the Museum. Members are entitled to free entry to exhibitions and we organise a wide variety of activities throughout the year.
As a Friend of the Ashmolean you can enjoy a range of benefits and behind-the-scenes activities. Your support will help to fund the preservation, conservation and expansion of the Museum's collections as well as scholarly research, education programmes and public exhibitions.
The new Ashmolean building has more than doubled the Museum's display space, providing 39 new galleries including four major exhibitions galleries, a dedicated Education Centre, state-of-the-art conservation studios, and Oxford's first roof-top restaurant.
Since our foundation in 1969 the Friends are proud to have donated over £1,000,000 to the Museum.
