The REME Museum was established in 1958 on the ground floor of Moat House, Arborfield. In 1985 it moved across the road, and continued to expand and develop over the next 30 years.
In April 2015 the Museum hosted its final event before closing to the public. The next 6 months saw staff and volunteers packing over 100,000 items along with offices and furniture.
On the 27th November, the Museum building was officially handed over and the ‘REME Museum of Technology’ in Arborfield came to an end.
We are now starting a new stage in our history as the ‘REME Museum’. Over the past year an incredible amount of work has gone into designing the displays for the new Museum, and with the help of REME Recovery Mechanics the majority of our vehicles have now been put into position in the main galleries.
The Museum is now closing until the 4th January so that staff can have a well earned rest and recharge themselves ready for 2016 which will see all of the displays and text created, installed and the Museum reopened to the public.
From all staff at the REME Museum, we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
See you in 2016!
Jennifer Allison – Curator
