Code of Ethics for Museums
Date: 2009-01-14
Museums Association publishes booklet titled: "Code of Ethics for Museums. Ethical Principles for All Who Work for or Govern Museums in the UK"

The code and the ethical guidelines provided herein move from principles to practice and offer increasingly detailed guidance appropriate to different levels of involvement in particular aspects of museum activity.

It articulates a set of consensual values and standards of behavior that are agreed at a particular time to define a relationship of trust between the museum and the communities it serves. (Adapted text from source: Foreword)
