Your help is needed.
During the current pandemic the Dean Heritage Centre had to close and as a visitor attraction and Cafe we will be affected for a long time to come.
If we had to close, the collection would be dispersed around other museums and we would never be able to recover those items.
We have no council funding for our research and collection costs but we are a community facility - holding onto and displaying our stories and artefacts from the past. Even if you cannot visit you can help ensure we continue to do this into the future.
A regular amount from £2 per month will entitle you to a season ticket, giving you free entry and 10% off in our cafe and shop. Just click here
We also have some projects we are raising money for that you might want to support.
Go to our 'Support us' page to find out about all the ways you could help to ensure The Dean Heritage Museum Trust is able to continue to protect, preserve and share the unique history and heritage of the Forest of Dean for future generations of Foresters and visitors to this beautiful area.
