Redbridge Museum is currently closed for redevelopment
An exciting, brand new permanent Redbridge Museum will open in early 2024. While we are closed, we will continue to have a presence online and our staff will be working with residents, community groups and schools to plan the new Museum.
A new Redbridge Museum - tell us what you think
Thanks to a £100,000 grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, and funding from Arts Council England, Art Fund and others, a new permanent Redbridge Museum exhibition will open in early 2024. This is an exciting opportunity to revamp the Museum's much-loved permanent exhibition.
