Today, legacies are as important as ever and by leaving a gift in your will to the Museumís Fund for the Future, you can help us build and care for the collection, support exhibitions and deliver innovative learning, research and conservation programmes.

Legacies of all sizes, large and small, will enable the Museum to safeguard its collection for future generations. To those of you who are considering or planning to leave a legacy to the British Museum, thank you for your support and generosity.
