Code of Ethics
The M&NT endeavours to operate and manage its collection based on the ethical principles laid out by the Museums Association’s Code of Ethics for Museums (although there are limitations as described in the Acquisition & Disposal Policy 2009).
In 2009 the Museum’s first official Acquisition & Disposal Policy was approved by the Board. This states that the M&NT will collect objects and material which has a strong association with the Falklands. Particular value is given to items made locally. The collection exceeds 4,000 objects.
The M&NT will not use Trust funds to purchase items for the Museum collection. However, the Trust reserves the right to approach individuals or organisations for sponsorship, or to ask for public subscription, which would then allow the purchase of a particularly desirable item.
