Why should I become a Member?

Members are our official support group, or fan club if you like and Membership is the perfect way to enhance your Museum experience. It gives you access to a range of exclusive Membership benefits such as; free entry for 12 months - even on our biggest weekend show days, the opportunity to preview new exhibitions and attend Member only events where you can meet the Collections Team and find out how we look after and care for the collection.

Bringing you closer to the workings of the Museum, Membership is at the heart of our plans as a charity. It's an opportunity to
 feel part of the Museum family and to learn more about our work. You can have your own private tour of the Museum to really get to know our collections. We will send your quarterly updates with our news and invite you to special Members' events as well as give you priority booking for others.
