On 31 March 2024 the SHARE Museum Development programme will close. It has been our privilege and great pleasure to serve the museums of the East of England since 2009.


Museum Development South East is the new programme for the South and East of England from 1 April 2024. It is a partnership between Norfolk Museums Service and Brighton & Hove Museums, and will continue the best practice and traditions of both SHARE and South East Museum Development, with exciting new programmes of support, development and grants.


The new MDSE website will launch shortly. In the meantime, the SHARE website will remain open to give you access to our many resources while we transfer them to the new site. Don’t forget to sign up for the new MDSE newsletter.
