Private tour of the Prince Philip Maritime Collections Centre
Thursday 05 March 2020

This behind-the-scenes tour of the Prince Philip Maritime Collections Centre is exclusively for our members. This is a brand new facility in Kidbrooke which houses and cares for 2.5 million objects, paintings, maps and documents from the world famous collections of the Royal Museums of Greenwich. Of particular interest to our members will be a chance to explore these hidden treasures and meet conservation experts, learning first hand how they prepare and restore artefacts for display.

Tour starts at 13.30 - 15.30 on 5th March 2020

 

FUTURE VISIT to ROYAL HOSPITAL CHELSEA

In May 2020 on a date to be confirmed, we will visit the Royal Hospital Chelsea. We will learn about its history and see buildings designed by Sir Christopher Wren on a guided walking tour led by a resident Chelsea Pensioner. We will discover what life is like for today's veterans at the Royal Hospital and hear stories of past residents.
