The COVID-19 virus has forced us to close our Museum to visitors, who provide almost all our income.  On the 75th anniversary of VE-Day, 8th May 2020, we are therefore launching an appeal – Keep the Keep Going – asking all our supporters to help us to survive these losses.  

In this battle we urgently need your help.  Every penny that is donated to our appeal will help to ensure the survival of the museum and to preserve and protect our unique collection.

"Keep the Keep Going!"

The Keep Military Museum has been proudly telling the stories of the regiments of Devon and Dorset who have served the country for more than 300 years. The Museum now faces its biggest challenge yet, thanks to the COVID-19 virus, and we urgently need your help. 

As the museum is unable to open to visitors, we face financial jeopardy. Therefore, we are reaching out to our supporters for help. Every penny that is donated to this appeal will go towards ensuring the survival of the museum and to protect our collections.

If you set up a regular donation, you will receive a copy of our new book Keep in 50 Objects. Please ensure that you share your contact details with us to enable us to send you a copy.
