Regional museum networks

Certain regions of the UK have networks which you may consider joining to enjoy the benefits of engaging with colleagues in institutions nearby. These can be fantastic opportunities to meet and share with others, which is particularly important for those who may not have colleagues working in similar roles in their own teams.

We would be pleased to add details of other networks to this page. Please contact with details.
