You are entitled to free entry to the museum and art gallery for the current year (annual subscribers).  You get a 10% reduction on cards and books in the museum’s shop (upon presentation of your membership card).  A regular newsletter can be downloaded using the link at the bottom of this page.  You get frequent invitations to the private views of new exhibitions at the museum.  Discounted admission is also available to museum events where a charge is made.

What are your subscriptions used for?

Subscriptions are used to financially support the museum with refurbishment projects, new displays, exhibition catalogues, conservation work and the purchase of new equipment. For example in 2008 the Friends contributed £12,500 towards the cost of work  in the lower gallery (prehistory and archaeology). In 2009 the Friends assisted with the purchase of a digital camera and a notice board.  An exhibition catalogue for the Robert Recorde art exhibition was funded by the Friends in 2011 and £4000 was provided to replace the ceiling and lights in the Wilfred Harrison Gallery (art).  Conservation work on the Sedan Chair was partly funded by the Friends as was the Museum’s new web site.  The latest project assisted by the Friends was the purchase of a TV/DVD player for use in the galleries.  In 2012 financial assistance was provided to purchase interactive ‘hands on’ material for the archaeology gallery, which has proved incredibly popular with families, and equipment for the museum’s ongoing oral history project – if you are interested in undertaking an oral history recording please contact the museum for further details either by ‘phone (01834 832809) or email info@tenbymuseum.org.uk
