The Mendoza Review: an independent review of museums in England sought to answer the question, how can government create an environment in which museums can flourish? This Action Plan sets out how government supports this ‘flourishing’ environment, through DCMS working with Arts Council England, the Heritage Lottery Fund, Historic England and other government bodies, for each of the nine priorities for museums set out in the Mendoza Review.
