Museum Ideas 2018 includes 5 days of events taking place in London from Monday 1 October – Friday 5 October. The main international conference takes place on Thursday 4 October at the Museum of London and is designed so it can be attended as a standalone event delivering innovative ideas, insights and inspiration.

4 days of additional events – including a special Collections, Communities and Collaborative Design Study Day at the National Maritime Museum – are free to attend for conference delegates but space is more limited and they need to be pre-booked.
