Historic House Collections: Drawing up a Collections Management Plan

Drawing up a Collections Management Plan

By Amber Xavier-Rowe, Lisa Davies, Guy Braithwaite

This guidance is essential reading for owners of historic house collections and anyone else responsible for looking after works of art, antiques and other artefacts in a home setting. It is intended to help plan both day-to-day and long-term care of furnishings and contents to ensure that they are preserved for the future.

A Collections Management Plan (CMP) is a working document that guides the long-term care of a collection of artefacts. This note focuses on collections of fine art objects, furnishings and other items in historic houses rather than display objects and study collections in museum environments.
