Museum advisors

Bring your museum to life today!

Do you need to increase and sustain your volunteer or visitor numbers? Looking for a way to develop new ideas or build skills in your museum?

Our Regional Museum Advisor Program could be the answer.

We offer a program for small and regional museums which assists with:

  • development of strategic plans for growth and sustainability
  • identification and development of tourism opportunities
  • developing themes and ideas for new displays and public programs
  • support in identifying funding opportunities

The program is managed by M&G NSW with funding from Create NSW. Participating local councils are asked to match the Ministry’s funding of $7000 per year. The Regional Museum Advisor Program has been operating since 2000 visiting and active in over 40 local government areas to date.

One of the best things about the program is that our Regional Museum Advisors come to you!

Under the program a Regional Museum Advisor is yours for 20 days of the year. We’ll come to you–to listen, look and spend time with you, your collection and your local council representatives.
