With the Museum of Liverpool now welcoming thousands of people through its doors each day, it’s been a busy and exhilarating time for staff and visitors alike. Along with a team of fantastic, dedicated volunteers, I spent some time at the Museum promoting our membership scheme during the opening week and if you were there, we probably saw you!
We were delighted that people visited our table to sign up as members, and were especially pleased that this included lots of families taking advantage of our special rate of £20. This price includes free, unlimited visits to the upcoming Age of the Dinosaur exhibition at World Museum opening on 22 October, featuring six life-like animatronic dinosaurs! A family ticket will normally cost £14 per visit so it really is a top deal but don’t worry if you missed us – visit our membership page and you can still sign up.
It was great to talk to so many people and explain how membership works and why it’s important. Whilst entry to our eight venues is free, the money we make from membership fees helps support a specific area of National Museums Liverpool’s work each year.
In return for their support, we try to make members feel closer to the museums and galleries by offering special benefits and recently we gave 250 members the opportunity to explore the new Museum of Liverpool outside of normal opening hours. Around 6 to 7,000 visitors have been visiting per day, so the museum is unlikely to feel that quiet again!
Keep an eye out on our membership page for upcoming promotions starting on 1 September or give me a call on 0151 478 4157 to find out more!
