Operating Collections Working Group of Museums Aotearoa

This document has been developed to assist museums that are responsible for operating collection objects. These may include trams, motor vehicles, locomotives, carriages, marine vessels and aircraft as well as smaller objects such as musical instruments, computers and scientific and technological equipment. 

While not a comprehensive ‘how to’ guide, this document provides guidelines and principles to assist decision makers and those responsible for our heritage collections to ensure the right decisions are made and appropriate processes are developed and adhered to. 

The further reading and references section provides international examples and practice guides to support collection staff and volunteers, decision makers and those involved in caring for operating collections.
