Tautokotia | Support Us

Museums Wellington is part of Wellington Museums Trust (trading as Experience Wellington), a registered charity (CC22571). While much of our funding is provided by Wellington City Council, we are dependent upon the generosity of our supporters and partners to ensure that we are able to share our collections with the world. There are a number of ways in which you can support your museums.


Enjoy a range of special offers and exclusive benefits at all four of our institutions. Our membership programme means you can take full advantage of a wide range of fantastic benefits while helping us share our stories with even more people.  Join now.


You can support us by making a cash donation to one of our museums. In doing so you are helping to support our conservation, acquisition and educational programmes as well as the maintenance of our iconic buildings.

You can make a donation in person at our museums or by calling 04 472 8904. Thank you – your support makes a world of difference.
