Help us to make Thackray Medical Museum fit for our 21st  century audiences

Our project, A Healthy Future, starting in 2019 will transform the Thackray Medical Museum to make sure our visitors’ experience fulfils their needs and expectations.  You can keep up to date with developments on our Blog or by signing up to our newsletter.

We need to raise the final £300,000 of the £4m to make this a reality. We have already benefitted from the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund, Wellcome Trust, Thackray Medical Research Trust, Arts Council England, Foyle Foundation and Scurrah Wainwright Charity.

Every gift, however large or small, will make a difference. By supporting the museum today, you can help us continue to offer enjoyment to thousands of visitors from across Yorkshire, and further afield, every year for many years to come.

If you are a UK taxpayer you can make your donation go further by registering for Gift Aid. Donating through Gift Aid means that as a charity we can claim an extra 25p for every £1 you give and it won’t cost you any extra.

Support our LEGO® Project

We are building the museum out of 150,000 LEGO bricks! For a donation of £1, you can place a brick into our scaled down model of the building, which will be an impressive 3m long and 1m wide. Find out more about Thackray in LEGO Bricks.
