Membership FAQs

Extension to Memberships during the Museum's Closure

As you know, the Museum is temporarily closed to visitors due to the coronavirus pandemic. We’ve taken this action to protect the health of our visitors, colleagues, and local community, and to play our part limiting the spread of the virus. 

When it is safe to do so, we want nothing more than to be able to re-open our doors and welcome you back.  

Until then,  we're extending the usage period on all currently valid memberships. This extension will be for the same length of time as the Museum's temporary closure period.  This way, you will not lose out on time that could have been spent at the Museum when we were closed. We shall update in due course with the logistics of this extension to your membership and also of the date we shall reopen.

A 20% discount on food and drink is available for members only and can be used  at the following outlets on production of a valid membership card: Rolfe Street Café, Workers’ Institute Café, Hobbs Fish & Chip Shop, Veal’s Baker’s Shop, T. Cook’s Sweet Shop and Bottle & Glass Inn. Discount applies to members only and cannot be used in conjunction with other offers. Discount does not apply to alcoholic beverages. Cards must be presented at the start of the transaction.

A 20% discount is available at the following shops: Museum Gift Shop and H. Morrall’s Gentlemen’s Outfitters.

15. What are the terms and conditions of membership?

Full terms and conditions can be found on our website at and a copy is sent with your membership welcome pack.

16. Is membership eligible for Gift Aid?

Unfortunately, we are unable to claim Gift Aid on membership payments as it can only be claimed on donations, not payments for goods or services. In some cases, membership subscriptions can be treated as donations for Gift Aid purposes but the value of the benefits we offer exceeds HMRC’s limit. For more information, see HMRC’s Gift Aid explanation 

17. Do you offer a concession rate on membership?

As an educational charity, we rely on the support of our members and supporters to fund our work. We believe our membership scheme offers great value for money so we are unable to provide any further discounts. We do, however, offer a concessions rate on our Unchained Pass and free entry to all essential carers.
