New stretch target

We are deeply grateful for the generosity of all our supporters in helping us to reach our £8000 target.Thank you so much for your support and for your encouraging and uplifting comments. With the lockdown now likely to extend into July every donation counts.  We are starting to think about the adjustments, equipment and resources we will need to ensure the safety of our visitors, volunteers and staff when we reopen.  Please continue to spread the word - any further donations will help us to reopen safely and will help ensure the future of this iconic museum.

The Museum is a centre of heritage, art and industry inspired by Kidderminster's carpet industry.  We use our collection and facilities to improve people's lives. 

The Museum is currently closed to help the fight against the coronavirus.

We are an independent museum, with no regular local or central government funding.  All our events, workshops, exhibitions, group and school visits are cancelled causing massive loss of income, but we still have fixed costs and bills to pay. Even when we can reopen it will take time to rebuild our programmes. As a small charity this poses an unprecedented threat to our existence. 

The Museum of Carpet is the only museum in the UK dedicated to carpets and carpet manufacture, and the only museum and gallery space in Kidderminster.  Through a series of displays, interactives and working demonstrations the Museum keeps alive the heritage of carpet making.  We keep safe a stunning collection of carpet designs and working machinery.  We deliver a vibrant programme of exhibitions, educational visits and workshops.  We provide a modern, welcoming meeting space for the community.

Please help us to stay open.

If you cannot afford a pledge, you can still help by sharing this page, telling your friends, or making a promise to visit us when the pandemic is over.

Stay safe, and thank you.
