Starting or Improving a Museum
Before you decide to start a museum, we recommend investigating all options and alternatives available to your collection, knowledge and resources. Could you establish a virtual museum via a website, present a temporary exhibition or create a publication? Perhaps you could contribute to a relevant museum or group already in existence? There might be collections, museums or historical societies already collecting and exhibiting this story that you could strengthen. Partnerships can sometimes be more powerful than going it alone. Starting a museum is a difficult and lengthy process so we recommend undertaking all the necessary research and planning.
