Pacific Collections at Greenwich

On the 9th of September a small number of MEG members gathered at the Royal Museums Greenwich stores to share knowledge and expertise on the Museum's Pacific collections. A new Pacific gallery at the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich will open in May 2018. Work on selecting objects for the new displays and interpretation has begun in earnest and will include objects collected on voyages during British maritime exploration in the 18th and 19th centuries. The new displays will provide opportunity to include through collaboration with Pacific communities indigenous voices and make way for new understanding of these significant collections.
