Testimonials

“As someone who doesn’t have a facilities management background I’ve found it a useful forum to discover so much more about how other buildings function”Debbie Gould, Hastings Museum & Art Gallery

“It was nice to meet up with other practitioners from my field from a variety of museums. This will be very useful for me going forwards with my work at the gallery”Jasper Richmond, Pallant House Gallery

“Having access to a wider pool of knowledge has been an invaluable part of this forum; being able to share experiences, problems and success stories”Elisabeth Long, Worthing Museum

 

Resources

Lighting Guide

This guide is designed to help those working or volunteering for museums or galleries, such as Facilities Managers, Curators and General Managers, understand the main aspects of museum lighting and how to plan a lighting project.

It also aims to introduce terminology used by lighting suppliers and contractors so that museum personnel can more confidently brief contractors to ensure desired outcomes are achieved.

The guide has a particular focus on LED lighting; the technology is rapidly improving bringing a range of new lighting options to market.
