The Happy Museum Project explores how the museum sector can respond to the challenge of creating a more sustainable future.

We support museum practitioners to place wellbeing within an environmental and future-facing frame, rethinking the role that museums can play in creating more resilient people, places and planet. Through action research, academic research, peer networking and training Happy Museum supports institutional and community wellbeing and resilience in the face of global challenges.

Read our Manifesto for Change.

Our own happiness is short-lived if we achieve wellbeing for our generation at the environmental expense of future generations.

Since its inception in 2012, Happy Museum has worked directly with over 50 museums and cultural organisations through peer-learning programmes, funded commissions, evaluation and research and connected with many more through events and an online presence stretching internationally.
