Support Us

The Diving Museum is a registered charity which receives no government funding. We rely entirely on the generous support of people who care about our diving heritage and who want to be part of our diving heritage and legacy.

Make A Donation

We are happy to accept gifts of money and relevant artefacts. Sadly, we may not be able to accept all artefacts due to limited display and storage space.
