OUR VALUES

Our mission is to preserve systematically and in a usable manner, the pre and post independence Royal Family records as found in Matsieng and other places. We will process, classify, catalogue, index and describe the available collection of the Royal Family archival materials with a view to making them accessible to all beneficiaries in Lesotho and in the Diaspora. Furthermore, we hope to develop means of formally augmenting the present collection with free deposits of copies being generated by relevant sources locally, regionally and internationally. In addition, we will identify, collect, process and make accessible all museum pieces and artefacts having a bearing on the history of the royal family. In the final analysis, doing all the above will create jobs and sustainable incomes for the people of Matsieng and thus add value to the ward-ship of the Royal Village.

To be a useful resource centre that contributes to Lesotho’s sustainable development through the promotion of her rich royal history and culture.
