Every day, people from all walks of life visit our museums and marvel.

Whether they witness raw energy at play in the Lightning Room, learn about our nation's First Peoples in Bunjilaka or pay a visit to Phar Lap, we ignite a spark and open the doors to a world of wonder.

Your donation to the museum will help fund education programs, scientific research and the preservation and exhibition of over 17 million precious items in the State Collection.

You will also be playing a vital role in building our communities’ understanding of our natural history, Indigenous cultures and social history for everyone to enjoy, share and learn.

Support us where it’s needed most:

  • $30 provides cockroaches to feed the spiders in the Bugs Alive! exhibition for a fortnight
  • $70 can deliver a Reminiscing Kit to an Aged Care Facility for a month
  • $175 can send the Outreach Program 'Museum in a Van' to visit a school in western Victoria for one day
  • $1000 makes you a part of our Patrons’ Circle for the year ahead.
