To ensure our Members have a safe and relaxing time with us, we have made a few changes including:

  • Fewer tables to ensure social distancing
  • Contactless payments only
  • A new one-way system means that you can move through the space easily
  • A simpler lunch menu, updated regularly

We hope you enjoy your visit.

Advisory Group

Advisory Group

Chaired by the Museum's Head of Membership, the Membership Advisory Group (MAG) represents the interests of Members and provides a forum for discussion. The group is consultative rather than decision making and meets each year in October, February, April and July. Meetings provide a clear channel of communication back to the V&A, a consultation group when deciding terms and benefits offered to V&A Members, and a chance for the Museum to hear Members' views. To propose a topic or a question for discussion at one of the meetings contact us at membership@vam.ac.uk with 'MAG' in the subject field.

As a charity, the generosity of our supporters is vital to enable our world-class exhibitions and care for our collections. Your support is needed more than ever at this challenging time.
