Hello and welcome to the Essex Museum Development website, a space where you can find out the latest news, available resources and opportunities for Essex museums and heritage sites.
Essex has a designated Museum Development Officer (MDO) to support museums across the county. The MDO provides information and advice and offers practical support to museums in three key areas:
- Collections management
- Organisational sustainability
- Audience engagement
These areas can include support around governance, Accreditation, volunteer recruitment, income generation and fundraising, marketing, learning and conservation.
