Details

We are maintaining world­ leading museums and galleries, and supporting the wider museum sector, by:

  • providing funding for national museums and galleries
  • providing free public access to the permanent collections of national museums and galleries
  • funding the Arts Council to provide support to regional museums
  • continuing to fund ‘capital improvements’ (like renewing displays or interpretation) for museums and galleries, through the DCMS/Wolfson Fund
