Trusts and foundations

We partner with trusts and foundations who are committed to inspiring the next generation of engineers and innovators.

The UK is facing a major shortfall of vital STEM careers, our collection has the possibility to engage young people with the everyday challenges engineers solve and the ground-breaking solutions they create. 

Vision 2025 will make our world-class railway collection accessible and relevant for all. 

We require vital support from trusts and foundations to achieve our ambitious transformation of the National Railway Museum and Locomotion.
