The most direct way of joining in Museum activities is to join the Friends of the Redpath Museum. This is a group that exists to promote the public program of the Museum. Its members help to organize fund-raising and publicity, act as volunteers on Sunday afternoons, and participate in the evening lecture series.

Donating to the Museum

Making a donation

The public programme is not supported by the university, and is made possible only by the generous donations of our supporters. The collections that form the basis of our public exhibits, and also of teaching and research at the Museum, are the accumulation of donations of objects over the last hundred years, and their health and growth depend on a continuing stream of donations.
