The Friends of Malton Museum are keen supporters of the museum, and many of the members are active volunteers.
Since we were formed in the 1970s, the Friends support the museum in a number of ways – in particular, they raise vital funds for special purchases or other specific purposes such as the staging of new exhibitions.
See #Membership for further details on how to join.
A Virtual Lecture
We have also been running a season of lectures and due to this year’s lock-down all our lecture programme was suspended.
In this time of restriction on all types of meetings one of our speakers has very kindly offered to do a virtual lecture for us – with an opportunity to ask questions too.
Thanks to Alan Hunton of the Woodland Trust we have an exciting first for Friends of Malton Museum.
