Become a Friend of the Garden Museum and help support Britain’s only Museum dedicated to the history, art and design of gardens.
Membership of our Friends’ scheme opens the door to our exciting programme of temporary exhibitions, bespoke garden visits and reduced ticket prices at our talks and lectures.
The Garden Museum office is currently operating with a reduced team, and as such we ask Friends to join and renew online rather than posting in cheques, or by emailing your completed Direct Debit form to email@example.com. We know this is impossible for many Friends who do not have access to the internet, and if this is the case please expect a delay in receiving your membership pack. We are hugely grateful for the ongoing support of our Friends and Patrons during this time.
Friend membership includes
- Free unlimited entry to the Garden Museum and all temporary exhibitions
- Exclusive Friends Private Views of our major exhibitions
- Priority booking for our popular Garden Visits
- Discounted tickets for Garden Museum talks, events and Garden Visits
- A complimentary copy of the regular Garden Museum Journal upon publication
- 15% discount on purchases in the Garden Museum shop
- Regular e-bulletins to keep you up to date with our news, events and future plans
Adding a Guest
Adding a guest to your membership allows you and a guest to enjoy free entry to the Museum and discounted event tickets including Garden Visits.
The Couple option provides individual membership cards for two people at one address, with both people able to enjoy all the benefits of the Friend membership (though only one copy of the journal is posted to the address).
To buy a gift membership choose the membership type below and follow the instructions, ensuring you tick the “Gift” option. This can either be sent to you or to the person the membership is for.
