“The world’s greatest city deserves the world’s greatest museum. This major landmark project will be a jewel in our crown.” – Sadiq Khan (Mayor of London)

We will only succeed with the support not only of our major partners, but also through the wider support of donors, visionaries and London as a whole. In 2017 we announced £180m of investment from the City of London (£110m) and the Mayor of London (£70m). The City of London are also providing the buildings themselves and investing significant additional funds in bringing the buildings back into use. The Goldsmiths’ Company and its affiliated Charity, and the Linbury Trust, have each pledged £10m becoming Founding Partners of the new museum.

We are also delighted to have the initial support of the National Lottery Heritage Fund, and global law firm DLA Piper, the project’s inaugural Corporate Champion. The Museum of London now needs to raise another £44m. Help us turn these buildings into one of the world’s great museums. The creation of a new museum for London is one of the largest cultural projects in Europe and an outstanding opportunity to leave your mark on London for generations to come.
