The ASHPASS is a pilot young people’s membership scheme running until July 2020. The Ashmolean wants to increase the number of young people visiting the Museum aged 16-18. ASHPASS provides an opportunity to involve and consult with young people in making the Museum more relevant for them.

What is it?

ASHPASS is a pilot young people’s membership scheme running until July 2020.

Who is it for?

This year it is exclusively for sixth form students, aged 16-18, attending Cheney School and Oxford Spires Academy.

What’s on offer?

An ASHPASS card, valid until 31 July 2020, gives the card holder unlimited free admission to temporary exhibitions and other events for young people. Please note it gives free entry ONLY to the card holder and is non-transferable. Click here to find our current and upcoming exhibitions.

Is there a charge?

No, the ASHPASS gives free entry to the card holder to temporary exhibitions.

Do I need to book to visit an exhibition?

No, just show your ASHPASS when you visit.

How do I use it at the Museum?

You don’t need an exhibition ticket. ASHPASS members should present their pass at the scanning desk to the temporary exhibition, on Floor 3 (not the desk at the main entrance).

Can I use it for other people in my group?

No, the ASHPASS only gives free entry to temporary exhibitions for the card holder. Anyone else you are visiting with will need to have their own ticket. You can find out more about purchasing tickets at this link.

Can I use it any time?

You should be able to use your card to visit the exhibition at any time. If the exhibition is full, you may be asked to come back later or on another day. The exhibition is often quietest at the start of the day and after 3pm.
