The British Museum Patrons support a wide range of activities and projects across the Museum.
Patrons also support specific projects such as the International Training Programme, which brings together international museum professionals from diverse backgrounds to share knowledge and to encourage future collaboration between museums globally.
In 2011 the Patrons helped secure the acquisition of a rare and
Cycladic warrior figurine for the collection and their support also made possible the ground-breaking exhibition Ice Age Art: arrival of the modern mind which opened in February 2013.
Members of the Ottley Group make an annual donation to the Prints and Drawings Department in support of the acquisition of Old Master and English drawings.
The Vollard Group support the Prints and Drawings Department in the acquisition of key modern and contemporary works on paper made after 1945.
