What we do

Our role is to support and enhance the work of our museums, helping them share the story of our region through its outstanding cultural heritage in ways that inspire, connect and add value to people’s lives.

We do this through:

  • Support with funding, strategy and development
  • Collaborative approaches to programming, engagement, collections and audience development
  • Sharing our knowledge, skills and expertise
  • Helping to raise standards, promote best practice, and advocate for our museums and the sector
  • Raising the profile of our museums and our region

Sawfish are also called carpenter sharks...but they are rays, not sharks!

There’s also a species called a sawshark, but that’s, well, a shark!

What the heck is a lek?

Males great bustards perform spectacular courtship displays, gathering at a ‘lek’ or small display ground to try to impress the females.

Road Runner!

The great bustard has a dignified slow walk but tends to run when disturbed, rather than fly.

Belly Buster!

The hen-bird on display at The Salisbury Museum was one of the last great bustards to be eaten in the town!
