Be part of our story

We tell the story of the nation through its extraordinary people. And we share that story with the world.

As a Gallery, we have to raise 75% of our funding to exist. Our Members make it possible for us to protect the portraits in our Collection, and share stories with the millions of people a year who visit us.

Existing Members

Membership takes you from looking at our portraits to really seeing them - learning their stories, understanding their creators. It means celebrating new exhibitions and acquisitions with us, and mixing with each other at special events. It means learning new crafts from the best experts in the world, and getting the most out of every space in our transformed gallery.
