Bequest from the Thatcher Estate

In May 2016 we had a mystery phone call from a firm of London solicitors, to say that the Museum had been left a bequest. This turned out to be a collection of silver items owned by Mrs Thatcher, and left to the Museum.
The items include a salver presented to her by the Grantham Conservative Group to mark 10 years as Prime Minister, and domestic items including a coffee pot and cream jug and sugar bowl.
They are now on display in our Thatcher exhibition area

Saying thank you to our volunteers


On Sunday 22nd May 2016 our volunteers came together for scones and clotted cream (amongst other treats). Grantham Museum wants to say thank you to the tireless efforts of our volunteers and staff. They make everything we do at our museum possible.

Lots of treats and a great deal of ideas were generated. Grantham Museum has an exciting future and our volunteers will be a big part of it.

If you would like to volunteer at the museum then you can call us on 01476 568783 or email us on
