Plan your visit

The Royal Borough of Greenwich museum collections and archive store can easily be accessed by foot, train, tube, bus, ferry and car.

During the pandemic, our collections manager and archivist have dedicated themselves to a digital cataloguing project, ensuring that the Royal Borough of Greenwich’s collections and archives are accessible to residents and researchers for years to come. This work will continue for the next several months, and will occupy the majority of their time and resources.

With this in mind, and in the interest of maintaining a safe workspace for our team and visiting researchers, we intend to re-open Royal Greenwich’s archives for in-person research in 2022.
