Since March 2013, the Cuming Museum service has been very active. A large scale conservation project to recover the affected collections was successfully completed in 2014. Fortunately, over 98 per cent of objects on display at the time of the fire were recovered and the bulk of the collection was entirely unaffected. The Cuming Museum has continued to run an events and education programme ever since, using alternative venues across the borough. Since the beginning of 2016 more of the museum collection has been made available digitally through an improved heritage website http://heritage.southwark.gov.uk/
The council is committed to ensuring that there is public access to the collection including new and innovative ways promoting it. We want to ensure that it is used to best effect for education and research and has as broad reach as possible. As part of this we will be including a heritage facility in our plans for a new library and heritage centre on Walworth Road.
