Gift Membership

As an independent charity severly impacted by the lockdown, the Design Museum has never needed its members more. By purchasing a gift membership today, you are supporting the museum while enabling a loved one to enjoy a year of priority free entry for her/him and a guest, plus up to three children aged 15 and under, plus exclusive discounts in the shop.

Please note that all members must book free tickets in advance before visiting the museum.

How to purchase

How to purchase

The membership begins on the chosen start date, unless the museum was closed on the chosen start date, in which case the start date will become the date on which the museum reopened to members (29 July 2020).

The gift recipient will receive a welcome email on or after this start date (we won’t contact the person you are gifting before the chosen start date).

At present, we are not able to send out membership packs or temporary gift membership cards.

Kindly please note gift memberships cannot be purchased by Direct Debit, and are not sold as "vouchers" to be redeemed upon first date of use.
