Membership of the Friends allows you to have unlimited free entry to the Museum  and discount in the shop. Members get invitations to private viewings, free copies of the Friends ’Chronicles’ and regular Newsletters giving details of talks and visits organised by and for the Friends.

Visits take place regularly to places of interest.

Being a member of the Friends also gives you the satisfaction of knowing that you are contributing to the upkeep of our local Museum in these days of financial stringency, when museums up and down the country are struggling to survive.
