The Happy Museum

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

It supports museum practice that places 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 it supports institutional and community wellbeing and resilience in the face of global challenges.

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