Institutional membership

Your membership helps us to advocate for and support museums to make an impact and use their collections to inspire people and change lives.

We make the case for investment in museums to stakeholders in each nation of the UK, including governments, funders and sector bodies.

As a member, your organisation will receive a wide range of benefits, including free recruitment advertising, ethical and policy guidance, access to funding, and substantial discounts for your staff to take part in our conferences, events and professional development courses.

We do not receive any government funding and the majority of our resources are generated through membership. Your membership allows us to continue supporting all museums and those working in and with them.
