Running a Museum




Museums are by definition bodies run for the public benefit.

They are generally run by a Board of Trustees or Governors, the main exceptions being Local Authority Museums which are run by the Local Council, Regimental Museums (Ministry of Defense) and company museums (run by companies and professional bodies).

'Profits' are ploughed back into the Museum's activities or to boost its reserves not distributed to share-holders.

Museums do not 'trade' except to benefit its core activities.
