Museum of London
Located on London Wall and close to the Barbican Centre, the Museum of London documents,explores and tells the ever changing story of the history of London.
This is your story just as much as ours. The collections and the permanent galleries tell the story of London’s development as a city over hundreds of thousands of years: from prehistoric settlements in the Thames Valley, through the founding of “Londinium” by the Roman army, to the great world city that London is today.
How did London come to be such an extraordinary place? Who were the Londoners who lived here in the past? What does the future hold? The Museum explores all these questions and more. It is a truly remarkable story.
The institution is over 30 years old and the twenty-first century has many changes. It cares for more than two million objects in its collections and attracts over 400,000 visitors per year. It holds the largest archaeological archive in Europe.
We aim to keep the stories fresh, our visitor-experience excellent and our creativity buzzing. The Museum of London must reflect the values of London itself, a city of diversity and energy where creativity thrives.
