The Covid-19 pandemic is having a continued and unprecedented impact on charitable organisations and the Thackray Museum of Medicine is no exception. As a charity, we earn the majority of our income from admissions, car parking, retail, catering and conferencing. Our prolonged closure and continued restrictions have led to a significant loss of income.

As we reopen our doors following the pandemic, your support is needed more than ever. With your help, we can continue to inspire the next generation of big thinkers, spark debates, offer opportunities for play, creativity, talks and education.

If you are able to, please consider making a donation today.
