Gift membership

The perfect gift for your friends, loved ones and colleagues
*Please note that in response to the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, The Museums Association’s offices in London are closing and all staff will be working remotely from Monday 23 March until further notice. Our phone system allows calls to be diverted and handled remotely and all our main systems are online, so member interactions should not be effected.

During this closure period we will be unable to receive and send post, we will therefore not be issuing new or renewing members with membership cards until we return.

Until then members can use their confirmation email as proof of membership and we are in the process of contacting participating venues to request that they accept this means of membership proof in lieu of the card for a temporary period.*
