British Museum Partnership Evaluation

Evaluating the Impact of The British Museum’s Partnership Arrangements

The British Museum has appointed DC Research to conduct an evaluation of their partnership working across the UK. The objectives of this evaluation are to:

  • Establish and evidence the impacts from this range of activity to (i) local museums and their communities, and (ii) to The British Museum.
  • Establish the relative value of different types of partnership activity to ensure The British Museum maximises these benefits in the future.

This work is intended to involve all museums that the British Museum partners with, and will assess the impact of the partnership to host museums in terms of visitor and economic benefits, partner and stakeholder engagement, support for funding applications, commissioning opportunities, community engagement and events, and the development of museum and collections management expertise and training.

The first phase of the work involves a series of case studies, and a survey of all the Museums that currently partner with, or receive loans of items from, the British Museum.
