American Friends of the British Museum
The American Friends of the British Museum raises awareness of the activities and collections of the British Museum among Americans in the U.S. and overseas. Founded in 1753, the British Museum holds in trust for the world a collection of art and antiquities from ancient and living cultures. It is a museum of the world, for the world. Since it's founding in 1989, the American Friends has contributed over $50 million in cash, works of art, and artifacts to support key programs and critical projects at the British Museum. We thank you for your support and help in making this possible.
