Prospect Heritage Group

Over 5,000 Prospect members work in the heritage sector. They are concentrated in the UK's prestigious national museums and galleries - from the British Museum and Library to the Natural History Museum, Victoria and Albert, the National Gallery, Tate and Tate Modern. Outside London, Prospect members can be found in the national collections on Merseyside, Wales and Scotland.

Prospect also represents several hundred archaeologists, who work for the Museum of London Archaeology Service and in Trusts and units across the UK.

Our members are specialists in conservation and curatorial work and are the acknowledged experts in their field, many with international academic reputations.

Together they collect, conserve, explain and interpret our heritage. Others are engaged in scientific research into natural history or preserving, recording and explaining the built and buried heritage.
