In December 2016, the Trustees of the charity were awarded a grant from the Cultural protection Fund to complete the installation of the three remaining galleries and to assist with museum staff training and activities.

The grant was extended in January 2019 to establish a Basrah Museum Library. The Trustees are grateful to all our generous supporters who have helped make this work possible.
