Museums and galleries in Suffolk

Our Museums Development Service supports the work of Suffolk's museums in preserving and interpreting the physical heritage of Suffolk.

We give grant aid to three independent museums in Suffolk. They are:

Association for Suffolk Museums

We also grant aid to the Association for Suffolk Museums (AfSM), which is an independent charity and membership organisation. It brings together over 60 voluntary and professionally staffed museums in Suffolk.

The AfSM provides a forum for museum development, as well as acting as a network in which museums across the county can share expertise and resources.
