from the Guardian

Museums and galleries across England received a £9.4m boost today, as the government announced new funding for educational work.
National and regional museums and galleries will be funded to work more closely with schools to aid children’s learning, ministers said

Projects include the Understanding Slavery Initiative, which saw the National Maritime Museum, National Museums Liverpool, Bristol Museums & Art Gallery, British Empire and Commonwealth Museum and Hull City Museums & Art Gallery collaborate to produce materials for schools about the transatlantic slave trade.
