LOCOMOTION

Science Museum Group

Jura Consultants was commissioned to lead a multi-disciplinary team to produce a Development Plan for Locomotion, a branch of the National Railway Museum to explore opportunities for future development at the site and provide a sound basis and framework for the task of creating a new masterplan. The study was the result of the museum moving into the management of the Science Museum Group in late 2017 and it assessed Locomotion’s operation and strategic position within the Science Museum Group and the National Railway Museum at York, as well as providing a vision for the future of Locomotion. The Development Plan guided the investment in the site, to create a better experience for visitors, a safe environment for the substantial collection of railway vehicles and a sustainable future for important historic buildings.
