Levels of support

We have four levels of support to choose from. Each one is designed to bring you closer to the heart of the Museum, its collections and the people behind the scenes.

To thank you for your generous support, we offer an exclusive programme of tailored events that take place throughout the year. These events provide:

  • A unique forum for reflection on the cultural impact of science
  • Excellent thought leadership on contemporary science issues

Annual giving begins at £1000 or £83 per month by direct debit.

For Gift Aid purposes we are required to split your membership payment into subscription and donation portions.
