Going to see exhibitions can be pretty pricey, so I’ll share ways to save money here on this page.
National Art Pass memberships
An Art Pass will normally cost you £73 for a year. As part of your membership, you’ll get free or cut-price entry to participating galleries and museums. This includes free entry to places such as the Natural History Museum and 50% off exhibitions at places such as the Tate and V&A. It’s run by the Art Fund.
Here are a few ways to bring down the price
Three months for £15
It’s rare to have shorter offers, so this three-month trial is a good way to try it out. Offer ends 31st January 2020.
25% off if you pay by Direct Debit
When you buy a full pass you’ll have the option to pay by direct debit, and if you do this the price drops by 25% in the first year. However it will renew at full price in subsequent years, so make a note in your diary if you don’t want it to auto-renew.
For £110 you can get double membership, allowing two people to go each time. You can also add the 25% off discount to this, making it £82.50 in total. The two adults, however, need to be living at the same address.
Bring a friend
There is an alternative option to add a plus one for an extra £40, allowing you to bring a guest each time. You can still save 25% on the initial membership but it’s not taken off the extra £40
Take the family
If you also want to bring kids along when you use your Art Pass you can buy a family pass for £115. Again you can use the direct debit discount in the first year to bring the price down to £86.25
