About Redbridge Museum

Redbridge Museum is the local history museum for the London Borough of Redbridge.

The Museum explores the many different places, people and events in over 150,000 years of Redbridge history. Since opening in 2000, the Museum has worked with hundreds of local people, produced more than 70 exhibitions and displays, attracted more than 200,000 visitors, held over 600 family activities, and taught 33,518 school pupils.

Thanks to a £100,000 grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, and funding from Arts Council England, Art Fund and others, an exciting, brand new permanent Redbridge Museum will open in early summer. While we are closed, we will continue to have a presence online and our staff will be working with residents, community groups and schools to plan the new Museum.
