Lightning Membership

Lightning Membership has been designed for people that wish to visit the Museum regularly – particularly those that want to attend our members events that are designed for aviation enthusiasts and give special behind-the-scenes access to our collection. It has been designed to give you excellent value for money: the more you visit, the more you save and you'll also be given the VIP treatment.

You will:

  • Get behind-the-scenes access to the Museum with a subscription to our quarterly magazine: RADAR featuring interviews, features, profiles and coverage of what's happening with our WW1 Exhibition and centenary plans.
  • Get advance notice and priority booking for our dynamic events calendar of talks, photography nights, exhibition previews, meet-the-curator, behind-the-scenes tours and re-enactments as well as invitations to our complimentary members-only events, held three times a year. Lightning members also receive a discounted rate for tickets to member events.
  • Save money with a 10% discount in our Museum shop and online as well as a 10% discount in our on-site cafes and restaurants at both London and Cosford.
  • Keep up to date with our monthly eNewsletter straight to your inbox focusing on our timely news and events happening at both sites.

Lightning Membership costs just £50 per year - that's less than £5 per month. You can purchase membership here.
