Museum Development Network (MDN) represents the workforce that delivers developmental services to museums across the United Kingdom. This workforce includes Museum Development Officers (MDOs), freelance contractors and other officers who deliver specific services to museums such as conservation and collection care, audience development, workforce development, volunteering and digital engagement. Each museum development team has a different make-up to respond to the priority needs of the museums they serve in each country and each English region.

MDN delivers an annual conference, which is supported by the Association of Independent Museums (AIM), and hosted on the day before the national AIM conference which usually falls in June.
