Information about Norfolk Museums Service (NMS) Collections Policies including immunity from seizure
These policies outline the principles that provide NMS the framework and standards for transparent and scrupulous management of collections in our care, using clear procedures and decision making processes common to UK museums in the Arts Council Accreditation Scheme.
If you have further enquiries regarding collections management policies and procedures, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Due to delivery of the Norwich Castle: Royal Palace Reborn project, the NMS loans out programme has been temporarily paused until Spring 2022. No further requests for loans out will be accepted until after this time.
Please note that all loan requests that have already been agreed will still be delivered.
