This study unpacks the current intergenerational inequity of admission ticket discounts and provides suggestions for reform which would make access to the UK’s museums, galleries and heritage sites fairer across the generations, and make it free for poorer older people. It focuses on institutions which charge for admission, as opposed to those which offer free entrance.
