DCMS announces £4m for museums and galleries

The Department for Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS) has announced a series of grants totalling £4 million, which will allow museums and galleries across England to increase access, improve displays and enhance public spaces.

The grants, jointly funded through a partnership between the DCMS, and the Wolfson Foundation, will be used for renovation and improvement projects in 39 museums and galleries.

Minister for Digital and Culture Matt Hancock said: “Our museums and galleries are among the best in the world and we should be rightly proud of these institutions.

“We want people to be able to enjoy world-leading culture wherever they live and whatever their background. These grants will make an important contribution toward increasing access to their wonderful collections and improving the visitor experience at museums right across the country.

“I applaud the Wolfson Foundation’s generosity in once again matching the government’s investment pound for pound in this important work.”
