We initiate and contribute to a variety of community projects across Plymouth and beyond each year. We are also running a brand new series of engagement projects as part of our ‘Museum On Tour‘ programme that we are running while the Museum and Art Gallery building is closed for the development of the The Box, Plymouth.
If you’re running a community project that you think Plymouth Museums Galleries Archives could help with, please contact our Learning Development Officers via firstname.lastname@example.org
