About Us

The Collections Trust is an independent UK-based organisation working with museums, libraries, galleries and archives worldwide to improve the management of their Collections.


Our Mission is to help museums, galleries, libraries and archives unlock the potential in their collections.

We do this for the collections community by:

  • Providing know-how
  • Developing and promoting excellence
  • Challenging existing practices
  • Pioneering new ideas
  • Bringing experts together

The Collections Trust is also an independent registered charity. We receive funding from various national partners including Arts Council England and the national organisations in Scotland and Wales.
