Three northern museums have benefited from the second round of Arts Council England’s Capital Investment Fund.

Durham County Council Museums & Collections – the former Durham Light Infantry Museum & Art Gallery will receive £500,000 to reopen as a significant cultural centre in the Durham Innovation District, showcasing high quality exhibitions by local, national and international artists and curators.

Silk Museum has been granted £165,000 to transform the Macclesfield museum building’s functions and accessibility. This investment will be used to increase the museum’s digital capacity, improve current storage facilities and to lessen the overall environmental impact of the museum.

The Bronte Society has been awarded £100,000 to install fully accessible, environmentally sustainable toilets at the museum in Haworth, Yorkshire.
