Collecting Cultures evaluation


The programme awarded £3.14million to 22 projects, covering a broad range of collections across the UK in a variety of museums. The grants enabled museums to expand their collections as well as delivering a programme of public and staff engagement.

The first programme was in 2007 and the second programme was in 2014.

Our evaluation has found that, using National Lottery funding, projects have:

  • undertaken a range of learning and outreach programmes, exhibitions and loans
  • developed permanent displays, catalogues, DVDs, temporary exhibitions, touring exhibitions, lunchtime talks, and outreach events in communities
  • hosted events with families and learners across all age groups, day schools, guided tours, study sessions and demonstration events
