Annual Membership

With so many and varied activities and the changing seasons to enjoy here at the Museum, there is so much to enjoy all year round. Our Annual Membership pays for itself in just three visits and is a fantastic way to support the Museum and our conservation work!

We are an independent Museum and registered charity, which means we are entirely self-funded. Our annual Museum memberships help to provide us with vital financial stability, making up 10% of the Museum’s annual income.

Our Membership benefits include:

  • Free standard daytime admission to the Museum for 12 months
  • 10% discount in the café and shop
  • 10% discount on admission tickets for guests when visiting with you
  • Selected discounts on Museum ticketed events and courses
  • Membership publications
  • Priority access to information on special events

How To Join

You can purchase an annual membership to the Museum here on our website, where you will have the option of making a one-off annual payment with your debit/credit card, or by setting up a monthly Direct Debit* to spread the cost of your annual membership over the 12 months.

You can also purchase an annual membership in person in the Museum gift shop on your next visit.

Or contact our membership team on 01243 811010 (open Monday to Friday, 9am–4pm) or email

* Direct debits can only be set up when you purchase an annual membership online. As we use the secure payment system GoCardless to process our direct debits, admission ticket upgrades cannot be applied to a direct debit membership, but you can choose to set up a direct debit when you renew your membership.

Direct debit monthly instalments plans would be charged as follows:
