Museum of London's collections include thousands of treasures spanning 450,000 years of London’s history, we tell the story of the world's greatest city and its people. From prehistoric times to the present day, we celebrate the unique spirit and achievements of Londoners which have shaped this global city.

Our London Wall site is now closed to visitors but is still available for venue hire and private events. Our new museum at West Smithfield in the heart of Farrindon will opening in 2026. For now you can still visit us at the Museum of London Docklands a few minutes from Canary Wharf.

The Museum of London Docklands tells the tale of the real East End, the river Thames and of the capital’s past as one of the world’s greatest trading cities. Housed in a beautiful, Grade I listed quayside warehouse, the museum reveals stories of trade, migration and commerce through a wealth of fascinating objects. See giant whale bones, swords and model ships alongside original World War II air raid shelters and Sailortown, an evocative recreation of 19th century riverside London.
