Security Review 'sharing day'

Accredited museums must obtain expert and objective security advice for collections at least every five years and plan to implement any recommendations.  We are interested to find out if there are museums in west Kent who are due a review of their security arrangements and would benefit from a 'sharing day' with a consultant security advisor to help meet the Accreditation requirement. Please contact joanna.low@brighton-hove.gov.uk to register your interest.

Naturally Curious

The new Naturally Curious website is now live. This is part of a programme of activities to understand, celebrate and make good use of our collective natural history collections and displays. The website is aimed at people working in museums as well as anyone with an interest in our museums. The website has details of the various museums and links to their websites, as well as a number of resources that may hopefully prove useful. New resources will be added from time to time, and if you know of a good one, please get in touch with Henry McGhie, Head of Collections and Curator of Zoology at Manchester Museum.

The website forms part of a package of work put together by an informal partnership of NW museums, led by Manchester Museum, World Museum Liverpool and Tullie House, with funding from Museum Development North West.
