Moving to Museum Trusts

Report produced for MLA in 2006 by consultants Egreria.

This report focuses on museums that have been ‘devolved’ by local authorities. They are distinguished by the following characteristics:

a) they are charitable bodies (‘museum trusts’) specially created to deliver a local authority’s museums services, with the intention of a long-term relationship between the council and the museum trust;

b) all the council’s museum responsibilities (including strategic planning) are transferred, not only day-to-day management responsibilities; and

c) there is a sharing of risk between the council and the museum trust.
