Essex Museum Development

Welcome to the Essex Museum Development website.

How can we help?

The Museum Development Officer (MDO) supports museums across Essex providing advice, signposting and offering practical support to museums in three key areas:

  • Collections Care
  • Organisational Sustainability
  • Audience Engagement

This includes, but is not limited to, governance, accreditation, trustee and volunteer recruitment, income generation, marketing, education and conservation.

The Museum Development Officer is funded by Colchester Borough Council, SHARE Museums East, and Museums Essex.

The current Museum Development Officer is Beth Wilkey: beth.wilkey@colchester.gov.uk

On this site you will find a variety of information and resources including upcoming events and training. There is also a ‘News’ section to keep you updated on the latest developments and stories emerging across Essex museums.
