HOW DOES IT WORK?

What you will receive

Once you have bought your gift membership online, you will be sent a gift membership code by email, which you can pass on to the recipient of your gift. This code will be needed to activate the membership.

A physical Gift Membership Pack will also be posted to you within 2 working days which will include a beautiful welcome card, outlining our membership benefits, as well as the same gift membership code sent to you by email.

Gift memberships can be activated via the Membership Office by calling 01865 278 016 or emailing membership@ashmus.ox.ac.uk (office closed 24–29 December), or in person at the Museum at one of our gift shops. Our Christmas Museum opening hours.


What if I'm ordering a gift for Christmas?

Please order by 16 December to receive your Gift Membership Pack before Christmas. Orders placed after this date will still receive a Membership code by email that can be passed on to the recipient of the gift.


Does the membership start right away?

No, the membership can be activated to start any time within 12 months of the initial purchase. It will not start automatically on the day it is bought.

Gift Memberships will be issued with a gift membership code, sent by email, and a gift card that will be posted to you to pass on to the recipient. Gift memberships can be activated, using the code, via the Membership Office by calling 01865 278 016 or emailing membership@ashmus.ox.ac.uk (office closed 24–29 December), or in person at the Museum at one of our gift shops. Our Christmas Museum opening hours.


Can I buy gift memberships at the Museum?

Yes! Gift Memberships can also be purchased in person from the Museum shops, or by calling the Membership Office on 01865 278 016 (Mon–Fri 9am–5pm).


Can I buy a gift membership by Direct Debit?

Gift Memberships cannot currently be paid for by Direct Debit, and we are not able to claim Gift Aid on any Gift Membership purchases.
