Annual Fund

This January marks the 50th anniversary of the death of Winston Churchill, and the last steam-pulled state funeral. To commemorate, we are dedicating a new display, all about his final journey, which opened in January 2015.


Donate to the National Railway Museum

Displays like this allow us to remember important events in our history, placing our world-class collection in context. We are extremely grateful to the Friends of the National Railway Museum (Southern Group) for generously supporting us by paying for the restoration of the locomotive 34051 'Winston Churchill'.

There are many other costs involved with creating memorable displays and we are asking all our visitors and supporters if you would like to support the Museum and all of our work and special projects.

You can support all of our work and special projects by texting RAILWAY to 70300 to give £3, or by donating online.
