Museum awarded National Lottery support
We are delighted to announce that the museum has been awarded initial support from The National Lottery Heritage Fund for our Salisbury Museum for Future Generations project.
This £4.4 million project will enable the museum to transform its displays and facilities – completing the work started with the National Lottery funded Wessex Gallery of archaeology in 2014. The museum will create new exhibitions dedicated to its outstanding collections of art, medieval archaeology, costume, ceramics and social history. There will be an extensive programme of capital works to restore and repurpose the Grade I listed medieval building. Alongside this the project will introduce a new and exciting programme of learning and engagement that will embed the museum in the local community.
Thanks to money raised by National Lottery players, The National Lottery Heritage Fund has awarded initial support and development funding of £429,400. This will enable the museum to develop the project plans in more detail and apply for a full grant of £3.2 million. The museum will have two years to raise £1.2 million in match funding from private individuals, trusts and foundations. An application for the full funding amount will be submitted in the summer of 2021.
