    Abstract

    The historian Raphael Samuel wrote that history is the work ‘of a thousand pairs of hands’. That comment certainly applies to the UK museums boom when thousands of groups, individuals, and businesses launched their own museums. In this paper I ask: whose hands exactly? Who founded the new museums of the late twentieth- and twenty-first centuries? Conversely, who did not? And if not, why not?
