The British Museum works across the UK in partnership with more than 250 cultural organisations.

During lockdown our touring exhibition programme is temporarily frozen, and we are working with partners to reschedule for when museums reopen. We know museums across the UK will be hugely affected by this extended period of closure and we look forward to supporting our partners in welcoming back visitors when we reopen.

We work collaboratively with partners on Touring Exhibitions, the Portable Antiquities Scheme and outreach projects contributing to the enjoyment and sharing of culture around the country and reaching diverse communities in rural and urban locations. 

We also provide training and skills development for sector professionals through our Knowledge Share Programme, for the public through the Portable Antiquities Scheme and for young people through our programme of paid traineeships. 

The British Museum is grateful to the Dorset Foundation in memory of Harry M Weinrebe for their lead support of our national work.
