On the 12th of October 2019, the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport announced a new £250 million culture investment fund to benefit "Innovative cultural projects, libraries, museums and creative industries".

Sir Ian Blatchford, Chairman of the National Museum Director's Council and Director of the Science Museum Group, responded:"This fund will make a huge difference to regional museums that are doing superb work and is a welcome recognition of the importance of investment in our cultural heritage. At a time when the eyes of the world are turned to Britain, it is encouraging to see further funding for culture, following the recent positive spending round."
