Sponsor a Victorian Valentine Card

Sponsor a Victorian Valentine Card as an unusual Valentine's Day gift!

The museum is inviting the public to sponsor Valentine cards from its collection as part of its fundraising effort for the Revival Project.

The museum’s collection of 350 Valentine’s cards, dating from the later Georgian to the mid-Victorian, has been identified as of national importance due to its context - the cards come from the unsold stock of John Low’s stationer’s shop on Wimborne High Street, which now forms part of the museum building.

It costs £6,600 to buy a conservation-standard display case to show our beautiful collection in a way which does not damage the cards. Visit the museum or Tourist Information Centre to find out more or pick up a Sponsor an Object booklet and form. You can sponsor an object for someone else. Just give us their name and details and you will receive a personalised certificate in return for your donation.

You can also make a donation online.
