Museum Development Officers
Museum Development Officers provide a wide range of free support, advice and help to the museums in their area. They co-ordinate meetings, visit museums, help with writing policies and grant applications and are a fund of useful information on everything to do with running a museum. In Devon there are three MDOs covering different areas of the county.
Find out more about MDOs.
