Admission to The MERL is free, but we do encourage all visitors to leave a £5 donation if possible. Your donations are an incredibly important source of income for us, and help to fund our public programmes and other activities.

Your donations help us to welcome visitors to our galleries and to offer opportunities, physically and virtually, to take part in our programmes inspired by the collections. We are proud of the strides taken in recent years to renew our mission to foster relevant and engaging experiences for our wide-ranging audiences that help change perceptions of the about the future of the countryside.

Your gift will also enable us to continue to work with local communities and schools and support new insights into the history of the countryside for students and researchers across a wide variety of disciplines, nationally and internationally.

Thank you.

The MERL Team.
