The loss of many exquisite objects recently is a huge blow to the museum (see the Stolen Pieces page) and we are touched by the many messages of support we have received from across the world.

While the objects themselves are irreplaceable, there was also substantial damage to our display cases and these will need to be replaced.

Our insurance will cover costs directly associated with the burglary, but if we want to take this opportunity to make significant improvements to this gallery by upgrading the cases and improving the layout, then we will need to raise additional funds.

If you would like to help us in a practical way, please consider donating towards our Emergency Appeal.
