Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology


The Friends organisation makes an important contribution assisting MAA to be a

thriving and successful museum. A major contribution is through support in fundraising,

and one focus for this is the annual Von Hügel lecture, sponsored by the MAA Friends.

New Committee Members

There is plenty of further scope to arrange additional special events and talks at MAA, and to organise tours to similar museums and galleries.  Many other Friends’ organisations have Committee members who take charge of events and outings programmes, and MAA Friends would like to emulate them within our special areas of interest.

We are keen to recruit new Committee members for this specific purpose as well as to participate in our existing partnership work with MAA.  Would you like to get involved in this rewarding activity? For an informal discussion please send an email.
