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, which itself is a deeply fascinating and historic area. We want to engage Londoners with their city and its history 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 five visited museums, welcoming over 2 million people a year.
