The legal and ethical status of museum collections: curatorially motivated disposals

This resource provides legal advice and guidance on curatorially motivated disposal for museums in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. It is intended to supplement the Museums Association’s disposal toolkit. The guidance focuses on objects that are not being engaged with by the public and where a curator judges it may be best to dispose, particularly where there is a hope that it will be enjoyed elsewhere.
