become a friend

Friends of Chard Museum was established in 2001.  The aim was to create a lively interest group with a passion for collecting and archiving local history for future generations. There are now over 140 members.

Many Friends provide support through practical help, fundraising and promoting interest in the Museum. The Museum would not survive without the much needed and ongoing support of the ‘friends, both in time and financially.

  • Free Admission to the Museum
