A Museum for Londoners


The Museum of London is on the move. We want to tell the extraordinary story of London and Londoners in a new museum in West Smithfield, right in the heart of London’s Culture Mile, which itself is a deeply fascinating area, rich in histories of commerce, medical science and bloody executions. We want to engage Londoners with their city and its story and display many more objects from our rich collection.

We believe London is the world’s greatest city and we are uniquely placed to tell its story, but only if we have a showcase worthy enough. So our ambition is to do this at the heart of a new cultural hub in the City of London with outstanding connections to the rest of London and the world, and in doing so we will become one of London’s most top ten visitor attractions, welcoming over 2 million people a year.
