Do National Portrait Gallery Members need to book exhibition tickets?
No. Members are entitled to unlimited access with no need to book. Simply show your Membership card at the exhibition entrance. Due to health and safety reasons you may be asked, on occasion, to wait until the beginning of the next allotted timed entry slot.
