Museum Collections & Archive of Royal Greenwich housed together for the first time in their history

Royal Greenwich Heritage Trust are delighted to announce the completion of the Museum Collections and Archive move of the Royal borough of Greenwich to its new home in Charlton.

Following a substantial investment by the Royal borough of Greenwich, the museum collections and archive of the borough are now housed together, for the first time in their 100-year history, at a new facility and store fitted to the highest standards of collection and archive care and management.

This new facility and research space will be open to the public by appointment only at the beginning of September, following a period of piloting new appointment and security systems over the summer.

Additional focus is to prepare and turn the new research room into a welcoming and accessible space for the general public and academics to visit to carry out their research.

An official opening date will be announced nearer to the time by Royal Greenwich Heritage Trust who manage and care for the collections and archive, in the meantime any specific questions relating to making an appointment can be sent to the Trust directly at
