A gift in your will

Leave a gift in your will and help us preserve the past and the present for future generations.

Every gift, large or small, will help us ensure that Amgueddfa Cymru belongs to everyone and is here for everyone to use.

Your legacy gift could help us in many different ways, whether to improve the very fabric of our museums, to help expand or conserve our precious collections or to help us deliver our education programmes. You will have the satisfaction of knowing that, however much you pledge, you will help future generations to enjoy and appreciate the diverse richness of history and culture Wales possesses.

Your gift, your legacy.

Unrestricted gifts (gifts donated on a general basis), allow us to be flexible and decide where your gift should be spent at the time. A gift in your will could help us continue to care for Wales’ collections, develop digital connectivity with people who could not otherwise access us, create exhibitions, or continue to work with people in communities across Wales.

We understand that many people feel particularly passionate about an aspect of our work or one of our museums, and so wish for their gift to reflect their passions; your legacy gift is part of your legacy. If you do have conditions attached to your legacy gift, it’s important you discuss these with us so that we can ensure we’ll be able to fulfill your wishes.

“We are inspired by Amgueddfa Cymru, especially the heritage of our Grandparent's generation whose stories are told at St. Fagans and the Big Pit. However, we wanted our legacy to facilitate young people in Wales to engage with the museums and tell their own stories in a way which inspires others now and in the future. The team helped us word our wills so we are confident our legacy will be used in the way we wish; Amgueddfa Cymru must continue to evolve and be relevant for entertainment and learning for generations to come. What memories will we leave behind for visitors in the 22nd century?”
