Charity number


The Bethlem Art and History Collections Trust delivers its charitable objectives through Bethlem Museum of the Mind, a leading information and learning resource for the history of mental health care and treatment. The museum relocated in February 2015 and was formally opened by Turner Prize winning artist Grayson Perry in March 2015.

The museum's new home in Bethlem Royal Hospital's former Administration Building includes permanent and temporary exhibition galleries and spaces for learning and research. It showcases Bethlem's world-class art collection within the oldest psychiatric hospital in the world still working today. This context offers vivid insights into each artist's life and struggle, and combines to present a unique visual testimony that changes the way we think about mental illness.

How Can You Help?

Our ambition is to keep entry to the museum and access to our exhibition and learning programme free of charge to all. We rely on donations to make this possible. 

If you would like to consider sponsoring an exhibition, please get in touch.
