Friends of the Museum – Scheme Temporarily Suspended

Become a Friend of the Museum, or renew your subscription.

The Museum is run by volunteers under the guidance of the Director and the Board of Trustees. We have ambitious plans beyond present funding and rely upon our members and friends for help and advice. Members enjoy unlimited entry to the Museum for themselves and a friend, enewsletters, discount at the museum shop, discount on booking the museum for private functions, early invitation to social or special events such as gallery openings, walks through tunnel, and free or discounted entry to other Brunel sites.

Annual membership runs from 1st April until 31st March.  (For those joining between 1st October and 31st March, the first year’s membership will cover the part-year to 31st March and the whole of the subsequent year.)

Different categories of membership are as follows:

  • Friend £10.00
  • Concession £6.00
  • Family £12.00
  • Supporter £25.00
  • Benefactor £50.00

Paying by credit/debit card online

When you click on “Join” below you will be taken to a secure processing environment run by our partners Worldpay, where you can submit payment card details. In doing so, you are agreeing that you pay an amount of income tax and/or capital gains tax, that is at least equal to or higher than the tax claimed by all charities and CASCs from HM Revenue & Customs on my donation(s) in each tax year.


The Brunel Museum will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 you give. If this is not the case please advise us separately by e-mailing Membership. At the same time please advise if the member’s details are different from the cardholder name, cardholder address and email address you supply.
