Museums Association Update

Museums Survey
 – Last Chance to Contribute

The Museums Association is partnering with Museum Development teams this year to deliver a new and improved version of what was previously known as the Cuts Survey. The survey will feed into the work of the Museums Taskforce as well as providing data for an annual ‘state of the nations’ report on museums, so it’s really important.

The survey can be found here. Please make sure that your museum completes the survey by 28 October as the more responses the more accurate the overall picture will be.
