Negotiations with National Specialised Museums

National specialised museums receive increased statutory state aid to support their operations. One of the conditions for receiving aid is that the museum must have a plan on the focus areas and objectives of national operations (Museums Decree 1192/2005), which are negotiated periodically with the Finnish Heritage Agency.

Museums’ plans 2015-2018

The plans for 2015-2018 were negotiated in autumn 2014. The plans include the focus areas and objectives of all operations, taking into account the national tasks of the museums. This reform has been part of the development of the national specialised museum system implemented in 2014.
