The objects of the Friends organisation are to advance the education of the public by the promotion, support, assistance and improvement of the Steam Museum of the Great Western Railway in Swindon and welcome new members.

We provide additional funding to assist the Museum in acquiring objects of railway interest and offer help to act as stewards at special events. A maintenance team overhaul, clean and restore exhibits and in the library we are creating a database of railway books, magazines, photographs, slides, postcards and documents.

Members receive a quarterly magazine 'North Star' and, except in the summer, a programme of monthly meetings are held on a Saturday afternoon or Monday evening with guest speakers providing illustrated talks on a variety of railway topics.

Unlimited free admission to the Museum is available to members on production of a current membership card.
