We’re delighted to be able to share with you a new resource aimed at exploring how to identify, care for and share rural collections.

The Rural Relevance toolkit for museums was created because of a skills and knowledge gap identified by the Welsh Government’s Culture Division within museums in Wales.

This toolkit is intended for non-specialists and is designed to build confidence in managing,
and enthusiasm for using, rural collections in museums. It contains inspiration and advice and is a jumping off point for further exploration and activity based on your own collections.

This toolkit was developed and prepared for the Rural Museums Network by Anna Bryant, Museums and Heritage Consultant, and we’re incredibly grateful to Anna and all the authors of resources produced for the Rural Museums Network over the years. Thank you also to the museums providing case studies of their work, and to George Monger for the collections care advice.
