Information about independent museums in the East Riding of Yorkshire and information about links with other museums and where they are.
The East Riding Museums Service works closely with a number of the independent, not-for-profit museums in the East Riding. In many cases this involves a member of the Museums Service acting as a consultant mentor offering advice and support to the independent museum to help them to improve their management and operations.
Both the East Riding Museums Service and these independent museums also operate as part of the wider network of Museum Development Yorkshire, supported by a Museum Development Officer who advises on ways of providing improved services to museum visitors.
To find out more about Museum Development Yorkshire visit the York Museums Trust website.
