The additional person must live at the same address. You will both receive a Membership card and can visit the Museumís exhibitions, Members' events and Members' Room independently. You will only receive one copy of the British Museum Magazine, Whatís on guide and enewsletter per household. Please note you can only Upgrade an Individual Membership, not a Joint Membership.
