As regular readers of our blog and social media will be aware, we regularly cover exhibitions and events at National Museums Liverpool’s venues, particularly the Walker Art Gallery, World Museum, Museum of Liverpool and Merseyside Maritime Museum.
While National Museums Liverpool’s museums and galleries are free to visit, there is also the option of becoming a National Museums Liverpool member, which apart from offering a range of exclusive benefits also helps with every aspect of maintaining and running the organisation’s seven unique and world-renowned museums and galleries.
Membership benefits include unlimited free access to all exhibitions across the organisation’s venues, as well as to the Planetarium and The Old Dock Tour. Members enjoy priority booking, meaning first access to presale tickets for what are often highly-anticipated blockbuster exhibitions, and are always the first to know about what is happening via regular e-newsletters containing news, exhibitions and free event listings. An Exhibitions and Events guide is also delivered directly to all members.
In addition, special members-only events are held regularly, often focusing on a new exhibition at a particular venue, and sometimes featuring talks and Q&A sessions with invited speakers. Members also have the chance to explore exhibitions outside of normal opening hours while enjoying a complimentary tea or coffee, and are entitled to a 15% discount at the cafes and restaurants spread across National Museums Liverpool’s museums and galleries, as well as in the gift shops and online shop.
Annual individual adult memberships are currently priced at £40 or £30 for concessions (60+/Student), while joint adult memberships are available for £70 (£50 for concessions). Family memberships (one adult and up to three children) cost £45 or £75 for up to two adults and three children). You can find out more and become a member on the National Museums Liverpool website:
