The Museums Association are a professional body who do a good membership scheme based on your income (or lack of if a student) and not only do you get two useful (and actually interesting) publications each month (one paper, one digital), but also access to good job information, a load of valuable contacts, helpful articles, free entry to 800 things(!!!)
