Sign up to your free membership 

If you are new to AIM simply complete the Join AIM form>>  adding the code (NAM2022) as a suffix to your museum name.

For example, ‘The Museum of the Light Infantry (NAM2022)’.

You can find our museum size categories at the bottom of this page>>

Payment will be picked up by NAM – in the field relating to payment on the Joining form, we suggest you use ‘cheque’.

If you are an existing AIM member you need take no action, we will extend your membership to ensure you do not lose out. For example, if you joined, or renewed, six months prior to the partnership start date (01 04 22) we will extend your membership expiry by that same period, adding it on to when the partnership concludes.

If you have any queries on the new partnership, or AIM more generally, please don’t hesitate to contact us on
