Our people

As a UK Registered Charity, the Museum is governed by a Board of Trustees whose commitment has allowed us to thrive. The Museum’s Patrons have supported us from 2004, prior to the Museum’s opening in London in 2005. We are grateful for the continued support of our board members and patrons. The work of the Museum is carried out by a core team of museum professionals, supported by our volunteers.
