How We Are Managed


The Museum is wholly governed, managed and operated by Volunteers and has no paid staff.

The governing body is the Council of Management, the members of which are charity trustees. The day-to-day management of the Museum is delegated to Trustees elected annually to serve as Directors, who collectively oversee the activities of the Museum’s Volunteers.

The Council of Management comprises 18 trustees, five of who have been appointed as Directors. The Council meets at least four times a year and is accountable to the Members of the Museum, of which there are currently around 180. The Directors attend the Museum most Tuesdays and meet collectively on a regular basis.
