BOOK TICKETS HERE

Unfortunately, the lift in our building is currently out of order, so there is no step-free access to the Museum at the moment. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Please note that face coverings are mandatory in museums so we will require visitors over the age of 11 to wear a face covering during their visit. This will not apply to those with exemptions.

The only public toilet is open Monday-Friday and is accessed from outside the building so it may be easiest to access this at the start or end of your visit.

You can read our COVID-19 risk assessment for more information on the steps we are taking to make your visit as safe as possible. We also recommend you read our ‘What to Expect on Your Visit’ document, which outlines how your visit will run and some aspects that will be different from previous visits to the Museum.

We can’t wait to welcome you back to the Museum of Richmond.

Black History Month – Our Stories

October 2020

To commemorate Black History Month, Richmond Council is appealing for Black people who live, work or study in the borough to share their stories and experiences. The aim is for residents to come forward and help shape an exhibition which will include stories, experiences, photographs and videos. Stories will explore family histories, traditions, achievements, cultures, and experiences of racism. The exhibition will be shared online and in public spaces around the borough and will recognise the outstanding contribution that Black people have made shaping the borough and allow everyone to better understand the histories of fellow residents, colleagues and students.

You can see the first snippet of these stories online here.

If you would like to get involved, please visit the Council website here.

Please note that this is a Council run initiative, which the Museum of Richmond is helping to promote; the Museum does not own this content and is not co-ordinating the exhibition. For more details on the project, please contact Fenna Maynard on 020 8487 5182.
