The Museum receives a commissioning grant in order to be able to fund its two full time positions from the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. As an accredited Museum, the organisation prides itself on recruiting highly qualified staff which have usually gained an MA in Museum Studies, or similar qualification, and who have had previous experience of working in museums.
