Friends of Portland Museum, formerly known as P.I.M.S. (Portland Island Museum Supporters) is a group set up in 2012 to help support the museum through fundraising activities and subscriptions.

By joining our group your annual membership helps us to support the museum and entitles you to free entry to the museum and reduced entry to our fundraising events.

The Illustrated Talk on Nothe Fort held on 5th July 2019 is our 21st event. Thank you for your continuing support.

In 2018, Friends of Portland Museum purchased a new outdoor sign to display at the Museum door and new garden furniture to enhance our secret garden.

We donated the funds raised from our 2016 events to the Thatched Roof Appeal, which ran through 2016 and was very successful. This work has now been completed. We have also purchased a display cabinet for the Maritime room, two outside storage boxes for stacking chairs (used for museum events), a new advertising flag with the museum logo, two new PIMS banners for events outside the museum, new UV filter blinds for the museum and new UV screens for the museum’s gallery windows which meet the recent accreditation requirements.

Thank you for enabling us to help the museum with the provision of these items through your membership and continuing support of Friends of Portland Museum events.

PORTLAND MUSEUM is an independent registered Charitable Trust run by volunteers. The Museum relies on the generosity of individuals, other charities and sponsors to support the conservation and care of collections, the on-going update of exhibits, its educational programme and community activities.

If you have an interest in local history or would just like to support a valuable community asset, why not join our Friends of Portland Museum group and help ensure the continuation of the museum.
