Your gift helps us tell Australia's stories
We need your help to build our collection. Our community of passionate donors is vitally important to help us share the stories that uncover the nation’s past and forge new paths into the future. Support our 2017 Annual Appeal to help acquire the 1881 Adelaide Hunt Club Cup.
Support our shared history
The National Museum's Annual Appeal helps acquire, conserve and display significant objects from our shared history – for all Australians to access and enjoy.
The Cup was purchased at auction in late 2016. Few gold horseracing trophies from 19th-century Australia survive today.
Donors to the 2017 Annual Appeal will be acknowledged in The Museum magazine and on this website. Donors who contribute $1000 or more are eligible to become a Patron of the Museum.
How to donate
All donations over $2 are tax deductible and will go towards the acquisition of the Adelaide Hunt Club Cup.

Thank you for your support. If you are visiting the Museum, the Cup is on display in our Landmarks gallery.
