    Abstract

    How and why do people found museums? During the late twentieth century the number of museums in the UK tripled. Most of these new museums were small, independent, and they generally focused on highly specific or localised histories. It is not clear why so many museums of this type opened. In this lecture, Fiona Candlin will draw on work in progress from the Mapping Museums project to provide some explanations.
