We rarely work alone. People we’ve teamed up with to enhance what we do and bring the best to Sheffield include:
A partnership between the V&A and Museums Sheffield was established in 1999 to extend access to the V&A's collections outside London. The partnership, which was renewed for a further four years in 2014, allows both organisations to explore collaborative programming and skill sharing opportunities and continues to see a range of V&A touring exhibitions and object loans go on show in Sheffield.
Tate has a longstanding history with Museums Sheffield, lending exhibitions and work to the city and contributing to innovative learning initiatives, some of which are featured in the Projects & Outreach section of this site.
National Portrait Gallery
The NPG has also been a long term partner of Museums Sheffield, working with us to extend the reach of the Gallery's remarkable collection and with a particular emphasis on encouraging young visitors in Sheffield.
The British Museum
In recent years we have partnered with the British Museum to bring iconic objects from the nation's collections to Sheffield along with significant exhibitions such as China: Journey to the East.
Sheffield University & Sheffield Hallam University
Through our Memorandums of understanding with both of Sheffield's universities we regularly work together on our public-facing programmes of exhibitions and events and behind the scenes on academic research and development.
The Guild of St George
The Guild of St George own the Ruskin collection on display in the Millennium Gallery and have worked with Museums Sheffield for many years to promote the enduring legacy of John Ruskin.
Sheffield Assay Office
Sheffield's Assay Office has been a key part of the city's silversmithing trade since 1773. Today we work together to support new and emerging metalworking talent in Sheffield.
