Leave a gift in your will

50 years ago, a group of enthusiasts got together to save and restore the Brunel Engine House. Today, their work lives on as the Brunel Museum. Please consider leaving a gift in your will to help us share the Brunel legacy with even more people in the generations to come.

A gift costs nothing in your lifetime and makes a difference for years to come.

If you are interested in leaving a legacy, please contact us at

How do I make a will?

Having an up-to-date Will prepared by a solicitor is the best way to ensure that your future wishes will be carried out. It is also the perfect way to leave something to help the charity continue their vital work for generations to come.

You can make or amend free wills face-to-face with the National Free Wills Network. The National Free Wills Network have teamed up with local solicitors across the UK and some of your favourite charities to make it easy to leave a gift in your Will.
