Support Your Museum

The Cynon Valley Museum Trust is a registered charity with the sole aim of keeping the Museum open. The CVMT receives no statutory funding to do this; the building costs in excess of £1,000 per week (not including staff). Our staff team is currently supported by a generous grant from the Pen y Cymoedd Wind Farm Community Fund. Under this funding, the Trust has been working exceptionally hard to become self-sustainable. However, Coronavirus put a pause on our work for a period of time and it is harder than ever for us to generate the income we need to remain open.

We appreciate all the support we receive; your time, money and support make a huge difference to what the Museum can achieve. Every time you visit the museum, you support the development of more activities, events and exhibitions to reflect the special history of the Cynon Valley.
