As stated our mission statement can be summarised as
"To establish and operate a museum facility which collects, stores and presents artefacts which record and illustrate the history of Redditch and the surrounding area to as wide an audience as possible".
Specifically, this project aims to establish a community amenity which will....
Present, publish and display historic artefacts and information in a manner that enables people of all ages and abilities to see, experience and learn about the history and heritage of Redditch and the surrounding area.
Promote increased community involvement and understanding of how Redditch has become the town it is today.
Ensure that as much of the history and heritage of the town survives and is protected for future generations to continue to understand, and benefit from, knowledge of the town’s history and heritage.
Increase the town’s visitor offering so raising the town’s profile and contributing to the town’s economy.
It will also:
Collect and store artefacts of all types, both physical (Objects, photographs, printed and written words etc.) and non-physical (written memories, films and audio recordings,) and store them in a safe and secure environment.
Translate and copy such artefacts into digital media to ensure their survival for future study and enjoyment.
Provide resources that can be used by schools and other organisations in the education of people of all ages so that they can better understand the environment in which they live.
Help protect the historic environment of the town to ensure that the historic sites and assets are retained and protected for future generations to use, enjoy and learn from.
In doing this we hope that the museum will provide an interesting and informative community facility that will be used by both Redditch residents and visitors to the town.
