Museum Relocation Announcement

Wandsworth Museum to Move to new Premises

dscf8955Wandsworth Museum is intending to move in early 2015 to new premises, in order to improve the Museum’s accessibility to visitors and maximise its funding to best serve the community.

As a result, the Museum closed to public visiting temporarily from 28 June, and will reopen as soon as possible after the move is complete.

The Museum’s flagship programme of formal learning workshops for schools will continue in the current location on West Hill until December 2014. Advertised events and workshops will also take place at the West Hill location until further notice.

The Museum’s Trustees are in talks with local organisations about the relocation and further details will be released in due course. The Museum Trustees believe that premises closer to one of the borough’s many busy shopping areas and transport hubs would now make a better location for continuing to further raise visitor numbers, as well as providing the basis for development of enhanced Museum services in the future. Wandsworth Council (which owns the Museum’s collection) and the Friends of Wandsworth Museum Committee are supportive of the relocation.
