We are world leaders in the way we embrace and interpret history, heritage and the stories of our historically important museums, houses, gardens and collections.

Our properties offer visitors the opportunity to learn, enjoy and be inspired in unique and inclusive ways. Each year SLM’s reach extends to more than one million visitors and 60,000 schoolchildren and teachers.

In collaboration with our corporate partners, we are changing perceptions, educating our community and inspiring future generations through redefining the museum experience.

We strongly believe collaborative engagement with projects such as the Boundary Conditions installation at the Hyde Park Barracks is the embodiment of world-class art coming together with world-class technology, showcasing where organisations like NEC create true value in society.
