Acquisition Grants believes that new acquisitions allow museums and galleries to interpret the world, spark debate and provide fresh entry points for audiences.

They can assist with the purchase of works of art and other objects of artistic interest dating from antiquity to the present day.

Within this broad category our criteria include:

  • objects of national and international importance, including high value items subject to temporary export licence deferral or being offered with tax remission
  • objects of significant regional interest judged to be of good museum quality
  • objects which will artistically enrich collections and support the expansion and development of new areas of collecting

Grants can range from a few hundred pounds, to hundreds of thousands.
