The Institution of Royal Engineers (InstRE)

The Royal Engineers Museum, located on Prince Arthur Road in Gillingham, has now reopened. Operating with reduced opening hours, pre-booked entrance times and a one way system in place, the Museum hopes to encourage locals to return back to the Museum.
RE Museum Director, Rebecca Nash, states: “We are delighted to welcome visitors back 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”.
Additional measures include an enhanced cleaning system and the installation of hygiene screens & sanitiser stations in the Museum’s reception and galleries. The Museum’s café will also reopen with a reduced menu and fewer tables to accommodate social distancing measures.
