Museums Change Lives in the nations

Museums have a powerful impact on their communities. Working with our museum colleagues in Northern Ireland and Wales, we’ve compiled two series of case studies about how museums have created positive and lasting change.

In these case studies, the museums demonstrate their meaningful value to the people who work in them, volunteer at them and visit them. Through these stories, we see a vision of the future of the UK’s museum sector – one that is dynamic, inclusive and sustainable.

Museums are becoming places with porous walls, working with communities and partners of all shapes and sizes to harness our fabulous collections and amazing spaces, led by a crystal clear goal of changing lives for the better.
