International Peer Learning in Museums Seminar #IPLIMS

During the IPLiMS seminar, we premièred this video diary produced by Paul Griffiths, James Rodliff and Darren Hussey.


Recorded on an iPhone during their visit to the Vasa Museum as part of a Peer review visit, it’s a bit rough around the edges and the sound quality isn’t great (a Transcript is available), but it tells the story of their visit.

Join us on 15th October at the Mary Rose Museum for a day of talks and case studies about working internationally, exchanging ideas and networking.


In Spring 2015, the Mary Rose Trust embarked on an exciting joint project with the South East Museum Development Programme. The project has been designed to establish, test and disseminate a collaborative peer-to-peer model of support between international museum partners, through supporting, evaluating and disseminating learning from the Mary Rose Trust’s partnership with the Vasa Museum in Stockholm, Sweden. Both museums preserve, display and interpret historic warships, but rather than to view one another as competitors, they actively collaborate to exchange knowledge and skills. Through this project, the relationship will be formalised through a structured and systematic approach to peer reviews, to ensure optimal learning for both partners.


As a key part of the project, the Mary Rose Trust, working with the South East Museum Development Programme and Working Internationally Regional Project, are providing this exciting seminar, featuring international peer learning case studies from the Mary Rose and other museums and the launch of a toolkit of resources to enable other museums to embark on successful peer learning exchanges.
