Concerned about Closure

Could your museum be at risk of closure?

Museums at Risk Survey

The South East Museum Development team are keen to identify and help museums at risk of permanent closure as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Please take a few minutes to complete this short online survey.

This information will help us to be responsive and tailor our support activities accordingly.

We may be able to offer you expert advice, help you lobby for support, and signpost you to useful resources and funding opportunities.

Confidential Surgeries for Museums Concerned about Closure

We are aware that the Covid-19 pandemic has put financial strains on every museum.  For some, the loss of income threatens the museum’s ability to continue operating in the long-term.

We are offering free, private surgeries to help you review your museum’s position, talk through the options available to you and help identify the actions you need to take.

The surgeries are delivered as confidential, structured conversations with your Museum Development Officer and/or other members of the SEMD team.

To book a surgery, please contact your Museum Development Officer.
