*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.*


Is your individual membership coming up for expiry? The quickest and easiest way to renew your membership is by doing it online.

You will be able to renew your membership 6-10 weeks before the renewal date, once you have received a notification from us to let you know your renewal is due.

You can renew up to 6 months after the renewal date and can either backdate the membership or start from the current month. We will only be able to send back copies of Museums Journal up to 6 months back and depending upon issue availability.
