Join us in supporting arts, culture and heritage in Southampton

We are the Friends of Southampton's Museums, Archives & Galleries (FoSMAG).

We're a registered charity, founded in 1976. We support Southampton's rich heritage by assisting and promoting the work of the city's museums, archives and galleries.

For over 40 years we've provided financial assistance for art restoration work, purchases of museum objects, exhibition catalogues, specialist training, and much more.

We also help to arrange gifts and loans of artefacts, historical documents, and works of art to Southampton's public collections.

FoSMAG is a welcoming group of people who contribute to Southampton's culture and heritage scene through volunteering, fundraising, and events throughout the year.

Friends' membership benefits include discounts at selected musems, galleries, cafes and outlets in Southampton. Friends also receive a quarterly newsletter and invites to members-only social events.

If you'd like to support our work and meet up with friendly and enthusiastic people, why not become a Friend?
