13 Feb Support The Learning Centre
Biggin Hill Memorial Museum needs your support to help us realise phase two of the project – the delivery of a dedicated learning space at the museum.
In partnership with Bromley Council, the Trust has so far raised a total of £5.325m, just over £2m of which will fund the delivery of phase one; new museum exhibitions and facilities and restoration of the historic Chapel of remembrance. The charitable Trust is now actively fundraising once more for a dedicated museum learning space. We need your help to reach our £250,000 target.
The Biggin Hill Memorial Museum will conserve the Chapel and the site’s wider heritage, create new permanent exhibition galleries, and provide visitor facilities. The learning space will complement these facilities and provide a dedicated space for learning, enabling a wide range of activities to take place. Through learning activities, the museum will better interpret the heritage of Biggin Hill, build partnerships, and engage and involve more people.
A learning space will allow the museum to fulfil its goal of delivering an accessible learning programme. People of all ages and ability will have opportunities to engage directly with the collections, to be inspired by the human stories, to reflect, and to enjoy new and special experiences that support wellbeing.
Overlooking the courtyard garden and Chapel, the learning space will enjoy a quiet and separate space whilst also being at the heart of the museum. The design will maximise on the views onto the historic airfield and conversely towards the Chapel and garden; a light and airy space fit for multi-purpose and multi age use.
