Free Admission


Your donation will make us the useful museum

While we receive funding from Teesside University, Middlesbrough Council and Arts Council England, we still rely on the generous support of individuals to help fund our world class exhibitions and valuable education programmes.  We’re currently donating for two very important causes.

Family art trolley

We’d love to give our family art trolley a refresh. The trolley helps children and young people develop vital creative skills in a vibrant and friendly atmmima trolleyamendedosphere every weekend and during school holidays. It’s packed with creative materials for visitors and their families to make something special to take home as a reminder of their visit.

The trolley is as old as mima and in the past eight years has used 3000 bottles of glue, 2500 pairs of scissors and truck loads of recycled paper.

The wear and tear of all the fun and hands on activities has started to show so we would like to give it a refresh, making it even bigger and better.

A small donation from you would help towards a trolley update, including:

  • Restocking the key equipment
  • Repainting
  • Buying new materials

Help us refresh our art trolley by donating £5 today – text MIMA002 to 70970 or click the ‘donate’ button below.

As one of the only collecting institutions for contemporary art in the North East of England we have a responsibility to commission and acquire work for future audiences. A small donation from you would enable us to purchase this installation which was made for The Northern Art Prize in 2013, an important accolade awarded to Cumbrian artist, Margaret Harrison, after nomination from mima.

Help us purchase The Last Gaze by donating £5 today – text MIMA003 to 70970 or click the ‘donate’ button below.
