Freedom of information

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 establishes a general right of access to information held by public bodies such as the museum, subject to certain exemptions.

The Freedom of Information Act gives any person the right to request information held by public authorities including the Museum of London. Under the Act the Museum of London must publish details of information that is accessible or exempt. This information is contained within the museum’s Publication Scheme, which is based on the Information Commissioner’s model publication scheme. The latest version was updated in March 2015.

The document specifies the types of information the museum publishes, the form in which the information is published and if there are any charges for information.
