Although the museum and gallery has spent the last few months in lockdown, throughout this time, important work has continued behind the scenes. During this period we have seen how important creativity is to health and wellbeing, and we hope that after lockdown the world will continue to recognise the value of art and heritage.

As a charity, we need to raise £300,000 every year to keep our doors open. That’s almost £25,000 every month! We believe that art and heritage has the power to make you feel good – and we want everyone to be able to experience it.

As an independent charity, St Barbe takes its financial sustainability very seriously. We raise most of the funding we need through admissions, retail, catering and other income-generating activities. 

We also rely on the generous support of the local community. Their donations enable us to present exhibitions, education and events for everyone living in and visiting Lymington and the New Forest Coast. Thank you for considering making a donation.

Every pound you give will make St Barbe even more special to more people.
