Strategic review of DCMS-sponsored museums, Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport, Gov.UK, 14 November 2017

The Strategic review of DCMS-sponsored museums examines the 16 arm’s length bodies (15 museums, galleries and the British Library) sponsored by DCMS, their functions, forms, effectiveness, efficiency and accountability. This review should be read together with the wider Mendoza Review for a full picture of the role, importance and potential of the sponsored museums in relation to the wider sector, and to understand how the recommendations from this review align.

Arm’s length bodies include: The British Library, British Museum, Geffrye Museum, Horniman Museum, Imperial War Museum, National Gallery, National Portrait Gallery, Natural History Museum, National Museums Liverpool, Royal Armouries, Royal Museums Greenwich, Science Museum Group, Sir John Soane’s Museum, Tate Group, V&A and Wallace Collection.
