Earlier this year we began to discuss the possibility of a membership scheme – it is something that many of you have asked us about in previous as you have been eager to show your support for the museum. We chatted to our team, looked to our neighbouring museums, and also asked our visitors. And after much consideration and investigation, we are pleased to now announce our ‘Friends of the Old Op‘ scheme.

For £30 a year, not only will you received exclusive benefits (including unlimited free entry to the museum throughout the year), you will also be helping the museum continue to carry out the important work of maintaining the oldest surviving surgical theatre in Europe in a grade II* listed building, as well as continue to offer an exciting programme of activities and events. Find out more and join up here.

But don’t take it from us, hear from our first two members, Clare and Janina, who share why they wanted to support us as a Friend in our new film below:
