The Royal College of Music Museum is undergoing a major development which will give it a new purpose-built gallery, a hands-on discovery area, access to a climate controlled performance space and a dedicated research area.
The development project is part of the RCM’s wider More Music campaign and supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, which awarded a £3.6 million grant in October 2016. The upcoming transformation of the RCM’s facilities will include new performance spaces, practice rooms, a café and repositioning of the Museum at the heart of the College.
In order for this to happen, our museum building is currently closed to the public and due to reopen in 2020. In the meantime we continue to provide access to our collections through an extensive programme of conservation, digitisation, research and outreach.
