Charity: Grantown Museum & Heritage Trust
Grantown Museum is owned by Grantown Museum & Heritage Trust. Our team consists of a professional manager, a curator and a group of dedicated volunteers. The Trust has over 200 members, with a Board of Directors elected from the membership. Members pay an annual subscription. Our volunteers help the museum with fundraising events and in the shop and Tourist Information Centre. The museum is a major community initiative and remains an ongoing community project. Burnfield House, home of the museum, was purchased in 1995 for £150,000, raised entirely from private sources. A further £300,000 was raised, with help from the Heritage Lottery Fund. We officially opened our doors to the public in April 1999. The campanile outside Burnfield House was built to house the restored town bell in 2006 with funding provided by the Bulmer Trust.
