Museums Capital Resilience Fund

The funds will support capital costs that directly increase the resilience of museums, either by increasing income, reducing costs or both. Activity that can be supported includes:

  • Works to increase energy efficiency and reduce running costs
  • Improvements to the visitor offer to attract new and returning visitors
  • Investment in income-generation such as outdoor events space, café or retail
  • Critical repairs and preventative maintenance, where a case can be made that this essential work cannot be carried out without support due to the financial impact of Covid

Grants between £3,000 and £75,000 will be available although the maximum award that non-accredited museums will be able to apply for is capped at £20,000. In exceptional circumstances we may be able to offer grants exceeding £75,000 to accredited museums for high impact projects that can clearly be delivered within one year.
