As a Corporate Patron, The Oriental Rug Gallery Ltd has endeavoured to support Haslemere Educational Museum’s aims and ventures, by helping to safeguard its treasured heritage, as it continues to serve Haslemere Town and its community, now for more than 125 years.
Haslemere Educational Museum is multi-award winning and one of the largest Natural History Museums in central southern England, with over 240,000 specimens and more than 140,000 Human History artefacts from around the World.
Its prestigious Patrons include: the Rt. Hon. Baroness Bottomley, Artist: Roger Dellar ROI, RI, DS, Prof. Richard Fortey FRS, Loyd Grossman OBE, FSA, Rt. Hon. Jeremy Hunt M.P, Philip Jackson CVO, Sir Andrew Motion FRSL and Michael Nicholson OBE.
This comprehensive Museum also houses three large permanent galleries of Geo History artefacts, as well as a library, an education room, and a galleried, arch-beamed lecture hall, while its expansive grounds contain a large pond, an observation beehive and a tree trail.
We are honoured and proud to give our patronage to Haslemere Educational Museum through donating towards its annual Christmas Appeals and more recently The Museum In A Million Endowment Fund, to ensure that this valuable architrave of rare and magnificent treasures, is able to continue undertaking its valuable Museum work in preserving and enhancing its collections, galleries and gardens - today and for future generations to come.
