PRICE INCREASE – From 10 Feb 2023

In the current economic climate, and with funding cuts and rising operational costs, we are more reliant than ever on self-generated income. In order to ensure that the Museum remains free for all, membership prices increased on 10 February 2023.

Paying for your membership by Direct Debit still offers the best value, saving you at least £5. Direct Debit memberships also help us to keep administration costs down, while also ensuring no gap in your membership.
