By donating to the Museum, you are helping QMM to protect, preserve, and share Queensland’s maritime history for generations to come! To ensure QMM continues to offer meaningful research, public outreach, and engagement activities, we rely on your generosity to bridge the financial gap between our own revenue streams and income from funding bodies.

Donations may be personal or corporate and/or singular or ongoing. You can prefer to donate anonymously (‘in memoriam’) or to commemorate a company or family name. All donors are granted tax deductibility, as well as acknowledgement on our web site, in our annual report, and in association with any communication about associated programs.
