Support: The Museums Association Publishes Information for Museums Facing Closure

logo_red2The Museums Association (MA), with funding from Arts Council England, has published ‘Museums Facing Closure: Legal and Ethical Issues’, a document outlining the legal and ethical issues relating to museum closures.

Drawing on research into over 20 recent museum closures in the UK, the document looks to understand how the governing bodies, employees, and the individuals involved responded.

Topics covered include how museums have dealt with a crisis that may lead to closure, how museums have planned for closure, and considerations around staff and volunteers, managing collections, museum buildings and sites, partnerships and contracts, IT and data, and the legacy of the museum.
