Our culture

Charting our course

Our key content themes are articulated in pictorial form here:

Who we are and what we do

  • We are a collection of diverse sites with unique identities, overlapping interests and a common purpose.
  • We are explorers of time, space, place and belonging. Our collections and subjects are about investigating worlds, crossing boundaries, bridging cultures, and creating connections. We are a place to explore the very essence of what makes us human.
  • Our collections reach across continents, cultural divides, tumultuous seas and cosmic voids. Through our institution, we have a uniquely interdisciplinary potential – art, history and science – which we can tackle separately and in dialogue with each other.
  • Our subjects are local, global and universal – they help us to pose big questions about the universe we live in, the planet we live on and its people.
  • Royal Museums Greenwich has a social purpose at its heart – to serve our communities and stakeholders in line with our function as museums and heritage sites.
  • We want to be a progressive national museum – brave and bold, relevant, inclusive, collaborative, proactive, ethical, informed and expert. We will listen and learn, evaluate and consult, working together to be a place by and for our audiences.
  • We will strive to tell histories more fully, recognising different perspectives and working with stakeholders to be honest about the past, giving an equality of voice and recognising intersecting identities.
  • We will support skills development, critical thinking, knowledge and understanding.
  • Our primary aim will be to be relevant and meaningful, both reaching out and inviting people in, welcoming all and supporting their wellbeing.
