to the Royal Engineers Museum, Gillingham. These unparalleled times have exacted a
great toll on so many lives and our target has been to ensure a safe, enjoyable
environment for our dedicated team and customers alike. We’ve thoroughly prepared our
historic site to adhere to the guidelines laid out by the Government and to achieve the
We’re Good To Go standard. The relaunch of the Museum’s galleries & services will
hopefully encourage our visitors to be further inspired by the history of the Royal
Engineers innovative approach to unprecedented challenges”.
