Yes. Your membership card will be posted to you once ready and is made from card in accordance with our policy for minimising single-use plastic.
The card is linked to your record and can only be used by you. Our individual membership card covers one adult and up to three children who live at the same address. Our household membership card is for two adults and up to three children who live in the same household. You cannot allow anyone else to use your card and we may ask for proof of identity.
Read our full membership terms and conditions.

Can I upgrade my membership?

Yes. If you have an Individual Membership you can upgrade it to a Household Membership. You will be charged £20 to upgrade from the Individual to the Household Membership. We will then send you a new Household Membership card.

Is there a ‘Friends’ scheme that I can join?

From 1951 to 2019 we were fortunate enough to benefit from the generous support of the Friends of Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery (FPCMAG) and we thank them for all their hard work and contributions. At the end of 2019 they closed their membership scheme and were invited to become the first Members of The Box.

Is there a Patron’s Circle at The Box?

We are planning to establish a Patron’s Circle to recognise the contribution of our high-level donors and high-profile ambassadors. If you are in a position to consider making a substantial (£1000+) donation to The Box Foundation then please get in touch with us to discuss how we might work together and acknowledge your support.
