Museum Collections & Archive Meet The Collection Meet the Collection takes two portable, immersive, pop-up exhibitions – ‘I am a museum’ and ‘I am an archive’ facilitated by Royal Greenwich Heritage Trust staff and volunteers on a tour across Royal Greenwich. Sharing local stories, through objects and artefacts from the diverse and extraordinary collections of the Royal borough of Greenwich, this tour will see these pop-ups stop in a range of settings spread across Greenwich to meet local communities. Manned by staff and volunteers, each pop-up will offer visitors the chance to handle real objects, to discover hidden stories; and to create their own response to what they see and hear, through spoken and written word, art and craft.
