The Museum Collections & Archive is undergoing a period of redevelopment.  

Greenwich Heritage Centre closed in July 2018, and Royal Greenwich Heritage Trust (RGHT) are in the process of moving the museum collections and archive of the Royal Borough to a new store. As this move will take time to deliver, the Trust plans to continue its public programme and research enquiry service

If you have an urgent research enquiry please contact the team:
