Museums Revisited is an intensive, capacity building programme designed to enable cultural exchange for international connections and create a stronger network among some key cultural institutions in the EU and the UK while exploring the role of museums in society today. 

Through Museums Revisited, we aim to respond to the lack of skills and opportunities for museum professionals in the EU; make new connections and facilitate dialogue and exchange between UK and EU museums; create new networks and encourage unexpected partnerships between museums and other cultural and civil society organisations; and influence policy change in relation to the role of museums in society, local development, tourism and creative industries.

The first phase of this project was research conducted in Italy in March 2021, thanks to the support of Department of Museums at the Ministry for Culture, ICOM Italia and AMACI, which involved 53 museums across the country.
