'Museums are institutions that collect.' 'Museums enable people to explore collections.' – Museums Association

Many museums were established for a purpose other than creating or housing collections. Sir Mark Jones, former Director of the V&A, tries to understand the present day emphasis on collections through the examination of collecting as a behaviour and the relationship of that behaviour to museums.
