National Museums online learning project

Project Summary

Introduction

This £1.7m project has been developed by 10 national museums and galleries (British Museum, Imperial War Museum, National Gallery, National Portrait Gallery, Natural History Museum, Royal Armouries, Sir John Soane’s Museum, Tate, Victoria and Albert Museum, Wallace Collection) and is a 3 year project, funded by the Invest to Save Initiative from the Treasury.

Summary

The purpose of the project is to get the vast amount of content already on these ten national museum and gallery websites better used.   We do not intended to create a new website or digitise more objects. Instead the project will focus on using existing databases, articles and functionality to encourage users to engage critically and creatively with museum and gallery collections.   Some tools and further functionality will be created to encourage this process. The target audiences for the project are schools and lifelong learners.
