The Ashmolean Museum has two high-level Patrons groups which provide exclusive access to the Ashmolean behind-the-scenes, at the same time as providing vital financial support to the Museum.

Elias Ashmole Group Tradescant Patrons Group

Grants given by the Elias Ashmole Group and the Tradescant Patrons contribute substantially to acquisitions, temporary exhibitions, conservation, the redisplay of collections, our educational programme and key curatorial posts. Since their foundation the groups are proud to have donated over �500,000 to the Ashmolean, enhancing the Museum�s collections as well as preserving important artefacts and works of art for the public.
