What do we do?
- The London Museums Group is a peer to peer help network.
- We represent and champion all museums in London and the people who work in them. We are the Museums Federation for London.
- We encourage career development and offer a forum for developing creative approaches to difficult issues facing the sector.
- We can help you keep in touch with people in similar jobs or with similar issues in other museums and run regular skills sharing and networking events.
- LMG welcomes members from museums, galleries, heritage sites, archives, libraries and associated museum institutions.
- We work closely with the Regional Museum Development Team at the Museum of London, which provides a programme funded by Arts Council England (ACE) of support and advice for museums in London.
