Closer links between New Zealand's four biggest museums are starting to pay off, Otago Museum officials say.
The chief executives of the Otago, Canterbury and Auckland War Memorial museums and Te Papa, and a Ministry for Culture and Heritage representative, have been meeting regularly for several years, and the museums are busy on several collaborative projects.
Otago Museum exhibitions, development and planning director Clare Wilson is co-ordinating efforts to streamline procedures for loaning artefacts between the institutions.
She said some earlier disagreements remained to be resolved but closer relationships were proving positive.
