Collections Review

The Courtyard, RAMM

Reviewing RAMM’s collections

The Royal Albert Memorial Museum & Art Gallery is home to almost a million objects. During 2011-2013 we took stock of this wealth of material, examining every corner of our collections.

What do we know about the objects? Why are they important? Are we using them effectively? What else could we do, to unlock their potential for learning, research and inspiration? How can we make sure that our collections will be enjoyed by generations to come?

As the work progressed, we invited other museums, organisations and members of the public to get involved.

We're sharing some of the methods we’re using to carry out this review (See 'Related documents', left)

We are currently reviewing parts of the collection and identifying material that might be more suitable in other accredited collections.

RAMM will consider loans from its collections and will occasionally borrow from other museums and individuals, provided certain criteria are met. (See ‘Related documents’ left).
