"the galleries in Covent Garden are able to display only a fraction of the Museum's remarkable, designated collections. For many years, most of the 'reserve' collections were held at a number of different sites. The Museum Depot at Acton Town, partly built with funds awarded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, provides a secure, environmentally controlled store in which curators can work to preserve our heritage for future generations.
Now, the 370,000 items not currently on display, including vehicles, poster artworks, photographs, uniforms and engineering drawings are together under one roof, where they are being properly stored, catalogued and made available for the public to view."
Many thanks to regular commenter Fimb and Tube Relief entrant (Part of Team Billy and pictured on the right) for alerting me to this. She's going herself on Saturday, so look out for her if you are going. Unfortunately I have other plans for this weekend so won't be going along.
