The Museum of London is an award-winning, charitable institution with a vision to connect people with the lived experience of London. The story the museum tells is one of place and people, evolving through interaction and exchange. We capture the capital’s complexity and contrasts through the London Collection.
The Museum forms an integral part of City of London Corporation’s Culture Mile initiative and are a key part of the Mayor of London’s Culture Strategy for London, and due to this the next five years will be an extraordinary time, as we maintain two vibrant museums and undertake the biggest project in our history, creating a New Museum in West Smithfield. The ‘New Museum Project’ is one of the largest cultural projects in Europe and will transform the museum, Smithfield and the City of London.
