The Museums in Somerset Group received Small Grant: Big Improvement funding from South West Museum Development in Spring 2020. The project aimed to enhance the 16 volunteer run museums’ online presence and work with Destination Management Organisation, Visit Somerset. The funding was to trial the paid membership for a year to raise the profile of these community museums on the Visit Somerset website.

Rachel Bellamy, Museum Development Officer for Somerset and Rachel Cartwright, Digital Engagement Officer, supported the participating museums on the project.
