With our help museums and galleries across the UK are able to get funding, grow networks and reach new audiences.
Acquisitions and collections
From a couple of hundred to hundreds of thousands of pounds, we award grants to museums and galleries for art of all types and media from across history, as well as supporting special collecting initiatives and helping to place gifts and bequests.
Curators and expertise
We know that supporting curators strengthens museum collections, so we offer a range of funding and training opportunities for professional development.
Exhibitions and audiences
We don't just help museums to build their collections, but also increase access to museums and galleries in creative ways.
As a champion of UK museums and galleries, we are able to use our voice to support the sector in a variety of ways.
Guidelines and resources
Our guide for museums outlines what support is on offer, while our brand guidelines explain how to acknowledge it once it has been received.
