Online donations

Even if you don’t have the time to volunteer, a donation can go a long way in helping The Museum of Bath Stone ensure that the history of Combe Down stone and it’s role in the building of the World Heritage City of Bath with its magnificent Georgian architecture is fully presented and explained to local families and children, senior citizens and tourists.

You can make a difference! While it may seem that a small donation won’t make a big difference, however even small gifts can have a big impact and help us to offer exciting exhibitions, events and educational programmes.

Donate an object to the Museum of Bath Stone

We’d love to hear from you if you have an item that you think might be perfect for our collection, but please don’t bring it to the museum or send it by post without arranging with us first.

Naturally we are particularly interested in artefacts that may have been used in the quarries and stone mines of Combe Down, but we are also interested in documents and photos that help to illustrate the life of those people who have lived on Combe Down.

To contact us about donating an object, please use our contact form.

The Museum of Bath Stone is very grateful to those who donate objects to its collection and under the UK’s Cultural Gifts Scheme, tax reduction is available for income tax, capital gains or corporation tax liabilities when donating an object to the Museum of Bath Stone.

The Acceptance in Lieu scheme enables UK tax payers to transfer important works of art and other heritage objects to the nation while paying Inheritance Tax, or one of its earlier forms. The taxpayer is given the full open market of the item, which, if appropriate, is then allocated to the museum.

The Trustees of the Museum of Bath Stone are obliged to make sure that every acquisition is in line with our policy, and that we have the resources to conserve and store donated objects appropriately. If the museum cannot accommodate your gift, we may be able to suggest an alternative recipient.
