MuseumsEtc Collection

MuseumsEtc shares innovation in museum practice worldwide, drawing on the international experience of hundreds of leading museums and galleries in such key areas as inclusion, interpretation, learning, management, new media, and visitor engagement.

Our new Digital Collection takes the impact of this knowledge to an entirely new level, enabling institutions - affordably and easily - to share the entire collection (60+ titles and growing) with all their staff, researchers or students. This is transformational, enabling world-class experience to be accessed more widely, easily, elegantly and powerfully than ever before! 

Our digital platform is specifically designed for use in academic and professional contexts. Museum and gallery professionals, university staff, museum studies departments, and university libraries will find the Collection delivers unprecedented ease-of-use and knowledge access.

And we're pleased to say that the museum profession’s enthusiasm for our books has been beyond our imagining:
