Many items on display at the museum came to be in our collections thanks to generous donations from members of the public. These items help us catalogue and display Portsmouth’s natural history, and keep it free to access for both city residents and visitors alike.
In fact, some of our most popular items actually came from public donations.
Visit the Portsmouth Museums site for information on our Natural History collection.
If you have an item to donate, take a read through our procedure information page, which details the steps involved and the contact details for you to get in touch.
