Friends of Malton Museum

Details of our next virtual lecture

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.

Upcoming Events

Until we are able to resume our in person lectures, we shall be hosting a series of virtual lectures.

A further list of upcoming events shall be available in early 2021.
