When the exhibitions in the galleries of the Kensington building closed in the late 1990s the materials that Member countries wished to have back were returned to them and the balance placed in store. Subsequently the remaining artefacts and the reference and literature library were gifted by deed of trust to The British Empire and Commonwealth Museum, Bristol.
