Announcing our new Museum Director

We’re delighted to announce that Liz Power will be joining the Museum as our new Director.

Liz comes to us with a wealth of museum experience. She is currently Head of Museum Learning Programmes at the London Transport Museum, though her operational stretch is considerably wider than that, and she has worked previously at the Imperial War Museum, British Empire and Commonwealth Museum and the Science Museum.

Oliver Pearcey, Chair of the Kew Bridge Engines Trust, said: ‘In a very strong field of candidates, Liz stood out in particular for her clear understanding of the issues facing an independent museum with a great reliance on volunteers and having to earn its own living. We are confident that she will bring the expertise, energy and enthusiasm we need for the next stage of our development and will carry on the excellent progress achieved by Clare Grist Taylor as Interim Director.’

Liz will join the Museum on 15th October 2018.
