A great many individuals and organisations have helped with developing this database and project as a whole. We are grateful to all of them. In particular we would like to thank our Advisory Board, the Museums Development Network, and the many volunteers, founders, owners, and members of staff who have answered our questions about the museums where they work. We would also like to thank everyone who attended our evaluation sessions and thereby contributed to the development of the database and web application.
