Science Museum Group

Karen Livingstone joined the Science Museum Group in 2011 as its first Director of Masterplan and Estate, responsible for creating, developing and delivering an ambitious Masterplan for each of the museums in the Group, creating new galleries and public spaces at each of them, and carrying out a radical review of the Group’s property holdings across the very diverse and geographically spread estate.

As the National Railway Museum reveals a sustainable vision for its new Central Hall, Karen Livingstone, the Science Museum Group’s Director of Masterplan and Estate, explains how our plans are shaped by the past, present and – crucially – the future of five museums which together are visited by more than five million people each year.
