Annual Pass

Explore your curiosity and visit the museum as much as you like with an Annual Pass. 

Information for current Annual Pass holders

Has my Annual Pass been extended for the 2020/2021 closure period?
Yes! We will be extending Annual Passes to accommodate for the museum closure due to COVID-19 and roof works.  All Annual Pass holders that expired on or after 23 March 2020 will be automatically extended and an email will be sent prior to reopening to notify you of your new expiry date.

My personal information has changed. How do I update my details?
On your next visit, our friendly staff will confirm your details are still current in our system.

Do I receive a new Annual Pass card?
On your next visit, our friendly staff will ask if you wish to have a new card issued or if you wish to remain electronically in the system and simply show your ID each visit. In the interest of plastic waste, we encourage all our members to select the electronic option.
