British Motor Museums

7th April 2016

The REME Museum of Technology is on the move! As part of the Ministry of Defence's (MOD) Defence Technical Training Change Programme (DTTCP), all military training at Arborfield and Bordon garrisons has relocated to the former RAF base at Lyneham, Wiltshire. This included the Museum and its collections which were located at both sites. To facilitate this move, the Museum in Arborfield closed in April 2015 to allow staff time to pack and move the many thousands of objects in the collection.
The original Officers Mess at RAF Lyneham is currently being modified to provide a new home for the REME Museum. The enforced move provides a fantastic opportunity to completely refresh the displays and layout as well as upgrading facilities such as the cafe and archives with a new reading/conference room. There will also be dedicated education facilities to cater for groups of all ages and interests. The new Museum is scheduled to open in November 2016. For more details their email address is: enquiries@rememmuseum.org.uk
