The British Music Experience is unlike any other museum in Great Britain. It preserves the legacy of the music that shaped our world and popular culture. It celebrates its significant role and documents social, cultural and political issues in our shared history.

The Museum is a leader and pioneer offering a vibrant and diverse range of educational and public programmes that educate audiences about the importance of the art form and its place in history.

We Need Your Support

As an archival and educational public benefit institution, the British Music Experience faces the same challenges that other non-profits do; it cannot rely solely on admission revenue and store sales to sustain ongoing operations. Friends, businesses and donors provide the critical support needed for the one-of-a-kind exhibits, its extraordinary educational and community programming, and an enhanced visitor experience.

Your contribution will make a difference and preserve our British music legacy.

Please consider contributing to the Museum by participating in one of the programmes below.
