Free Training Resources for Museum Professionals

Continued professional development is essential to anyone who wants to keep up to date with the latest thinking in museums. Our conferences offer an unmissable opportunity to hear from those shaping the future of the sector.

Over the past decade, we’ve enjoyed presentations on the MuseumNext stage from leading museum thinkers. They have spoken about everything from emerging digital technology to leadership, to engagement.

These films are available free of charge along with numerous articles. This is a fantastic free training resource for museum professionals.

This collection of talks go back as far as 2011, and we are continually adding more films.

We’ve been delighted to hear from Educators that these films are being used as a training resource for museum qualifications. And also from those working in museums which aren’t able to make it to our events.

Some of the highlights of the MuseumNext archive include:

We’d encourage you to share these films and the ideas found in them with colleagues.

We feel that these films are a great free resource for those with interest in moving museum practice forward, and would like to see as many people benefit from these as possible.

If you’d like to attend one of our conferences in person, the latest event information can be found here.
