Museums and galleries across England will be able to apply for a share of £4 million to improve exhibition spaces and increase accessibility.
Grants of up to £300,000 from the DCMS/ Wolfson Museums and Galleries Improvement Fund will be available for eligible museums to apply for from spring 2018.
The scheme – jointly funded by DCMS and the Wolfson Foundation – is designed to improve the quality of displays, enhance exhibition spaces and increase access.
Since the partnership began in 2001, ten rounds of grants have helped fund 343 renovation and improvement projects at 107 museum groups and galleries. The 11th round is currently underway and is supporting an additional 39 museums.
