Paul Taylor

Head of Collections & Interim Director of Cultural Engagement

Paul is responsible for the ongoing care and management of over 1 million museum, library and archive items held by the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust. Much of this work is focussed on how to better integrate the collections to ensure they can be researched, used and enjoyed by future generations.

He joined the Trust in 2012 as Collections Manager having spent eight years at the Herbert Art Gallery and Museum in Coventry, working on a range of collections information and digital access projects. During his time in Coventry he also served for three years as Employee Trustee on the governing board of the organisation. Prior to that he worked for the Boat Museum (now National Waterways Museum) in Ellesmere Port on a variety of collections management projects.

Paul studied History at the University of York before going on to complete a MA in Museum Studies at the University of Leicester in 2000.
