The UCL Museum Wellbeing Measures Toolkit is a set of scales of measurement used to assess levels of wellbeing arising from participation in museum and gallery activities that has been trialled across the UK. The Toolkit has been designed to help people involved in running in-house or outreach museum projects, to evaluate the impact of this work on the psychological wellbeing of their audiences. The Toolkit is flexible in its application and supports a ‘pick and mix’ approach. It can be used to evaluate the impact of a one-off activity or programme of events.

The Toolkit was produced by researchers from University College London (UCL) Museums & Public Engagement and funded by the Arts & Humanities Research Council (AHRC).
