Norfolk Museums Service comprises museums, collections study centres and countywide services relating to archaeology and education.
Norfolk Museums Service was established in 1974 when the County and District Councils in Norfolk agreed to delegate their museum powers to a Joint Committee to manage museums through a county-wide Museums Service. NMAS is now regarded as one of the leaders in the museum sector and in 2012 was successful in its bid for major investment from Arts Council England. NMAS is one of only sixteen museum services in England to be awarded Major Partner Museum status by the Arts Council. Click here to find out more about how this funding is helping us improve services.
