Website upgrade

The membership website is undergoing a temporary upgrade and will be available late October 2019. 

During this time you will not be able to renew or update your membership details online. 

You can renew in person at our museums (excluding The Mint and Hyde Park Barracks).

We will notify you once the upgrade is complete.

Sydney Open 

While the membership website is being upgraded, you can still purchase a Sydney Open membership bundle, which combines a Sydney Open ticket with year-round membership benefits.
