The Fitzwilliam Museum was founded in 1816 from the bequest of Richard, VII Viscount Fitzwilliam of Merrion and the tradition of philanthropy has supported the Museum to flourish as a place of knowledge, inspiration and beauty ever since. Research, education, conservation, acquisitions, exhibitions and collections care have been made possible through acts of generosity.
