Buy a Butterfly Appeal

Museums Sheffield Curator Alistair McLean with Audrey Young's daughter, Val

Thank you to all our wonderful butterfly owners!

Together you raised over £28,000 to support inspirational workshops for children and families, and to care for the many thousands of historic items in our care.

Between 2012 and 2014 over 350 of you proudly displayed messages and names of loved ones on our butterfly wall at Weston Park Museum as part of our Buy a Butterfly Appeal.

Through the Appeal many of you chose to share your personal stories about what the Museum means to you :

“Me and my sister used to come to the museum every Saturday ... It’s lovely to be able to come here with my parents and bring my children and show them the things, like Snowy the polar bear, which I loved so much as a child.”
Becky from Crookesmoor

After two wonderful years it is now finally time to say goodbye our beautiful butterflies and this Appeal is now closed.

With the Museum's 10th birthday on the horizon in 2016, we are planning to launch a new way for you to become part of our story and to show your support. Watch this space!
