Of London’s museums, five received funding in the current round.
The London Transport Museum was granted £450,000, the London Museum of Water and Steam got £58,845, the Gunnersbury Park Museum received £187,795, the Jewish Museum received £36,266 and the Brunel Museum was granted £56,000.
Sam Mullins OBE, Director of London Transport Museum, said: ” As we plan for the year ahead, this new Culture Recovery Fund grant is supporting a truly sustainable recovery. It will see us continue to re-build after the devastating impact of the pandemic and invest in new programming. When cultural attractions reopened earlier this year it signalled brighter times ahead. Their ongoing recovery is critical to our towns and city centres, as well as the wider UK economy and the country’s wellbeing.”
