Plus, throughout the year our members can “Get Closer” to our Black Country story with exclusive free behind-the-scenes events. We will introduce members to our collections, host online talks and much more. 

Members will also have the opportunity to delve deeper into our brand new Forging Ahead development, with special events and talks about the project.

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 

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.

The gift membership is not activated immediately on purchase from our website. The 12 month membership will start as soon as it is activated by the recipient online or in person at the Museum. Instructions on how to activate the membership are contained inside the pack.

Gift memberships are sent to the purchaser. If you would like your gift membership to be sent directly to the recipient there is a form which you can fill our when purchasing to provide their details and add a personalised note to the pack.
