Through our strategic ambitions of curiosity, creativity, collaboration and sustainability, MAAS is committed to advancing knowledge through research. Our evolving collection and programme are key to the ways in which we inspire and foster scholarly inquiry, sharing new knowledge we generate with the public.

Guided by our Research Policy Framework, we will play a key role in identifying areas of future research and investigation to enable us to continue undertaking a rigorous program of interdisciplinary research across applied arts and sciences.

MAAS is committed to building a vibrant and supportive research culture enabling our researchers to partner with those in cultural and academic institutions to develop innovative approaches to researching material culture and the museum context.
