Our Museums

Vision, mission & strategy

At National Museums NI, we are embarking on an ambitious programme of transformation to ensure that we achieve the maximum public benefit through everything we do.




Our organisational vision is to celebrate who we are; telling the stories of our past, challenging our present and shaping our future. We believe that our museums can set an example in adapting to change, encouraging debate, promoting reconciliation and supporting diversity and sustainability.

Our mission is to:

  • Develop, manage and care for our collections to benefit current and future generations.
  • Make our collections accessible to the widest possible audiences.
  • Play a leading role in the economic and social wellbeing and future of this place.
  • Build an organisation where people feel valued.
