This exciting project is finally creating a permanent home for the Heath Robinson collection and is the first purpose-built museum in the Greater London region for over 40 years.  A delight for Heath Robinson fans, young and old.

Creating the Museum is costing around £1.8m, of which the Heritage Lottery Fund has provided £1.3m. Generous donors have given over £400,000.

Just £50,000 is still needed. You can support this project - buy a virtual Brick! Bricks cost £25; if we claim Gift Aid on your donation, it is worth £31.25 to the Museum. Click here to buy your Brick.


You can become a Bronze Donor of the Museum. This costs £250. In return we will give you the choice of two books on Heath Robinson by expert Geoffrey Beare, and invite you to special events.


Become a Silver Donor for £1,000 and in addition to the above, you will also gain Life Membership of the Friends of the Museum. Your name will be displayed in the Museum.


Gold Donors who donate £10,000 or more will, in addition to the above, be invited to VIP events and have Life Membership for two people.
