Individual Membership

Individual Membership

From £64*

The perfect option if you want to explore the Museum. Your single card gives you entry to all special exhibitions and the Members' room but can always be upgraded by adding an extra cardholder or a guest facility if you'd like to enjoy all this with friends and family.



Under 26 Membership

Under 26 Membership

From £44*

Under 26 Membership includes everything you find in the Individual Membership but is offered at a special lower price.



Direct Debit

Paying by Direct Debit reduces administration costs.

Direct Debit is convenient and safe and it helps us to keep administration costs low. You are fully protected by the Direct Debit guarantee and can cancel future payments at any time by contacting your bank.

Gift Aid

Support the Museum at no extra cost to you.

If you are a UK tax payer, using Gift Aid means that for every pound you give, the Museum gets an extra 25 pence from HM Revenue and Customs.
