1.1 Our mission is as follows: ‘The Horniman connects us all with global cultures and the natural environment, encouraging us to shape a positive future for the world we all share’.
The Master Plan will help us deliver this mission by:
• Reviewing the site as a whole, to identify how we can make better and more efficient use of it to deliver both income generating activities and free public amenities
• Addressing congestion issues relating to the entrance area to improve the visitor experience and self-generating income opportunities
• Prioritising the visitor journey and experience, making it more accessible and legible for all
• Supporting the development of options for the long term future of our Study Collections Centre
We anticipate that this exercise will result in a Master Plan of a series of discreet phased capital projects that could be delivered over a period of 10+ years. At a recent Away Day, trustees discussed the different elements of a ten year Master Plan, and took the decision to appoint a consultancy to assist them in the Master-Planning exercise.
