Three museums in London are expected to begin major redevelopments after it was announced they would benefit from a substantial grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
The Victoria and Albert Museum, the Design Museum and the Imperial War Museum were awarded a total of £16 million, along with the Tank Museum in Dorset, to help improve different facets of the selected institutions.
The Design Museum is moving to a new, expansive home at the Commonwealth Institute in Kensington and will be supported by a £4.7 million boost, whilst ‘groundbreaking` First World War Galleries will be created at the Imperial War Museum thanks to a £4.5 million contribution from the grant.
A two-year project taking place at the Victoria and Albert museum to dramatically improve a space for the institution`s Europe 1600-1800 collections will receive £4.3 million.
