Access and enquiries

Want to visit our collections to find out more, book an appointment or contact an archivist? Most of our collections are accessible. Contact us to arrange a viewing.

We welcome requests

Contact us for:

  • information about our collections
  • research appointments to examine objects not on display
  • help in identifying objects found in London.

Most of the collections are accessible with sufficient notice, but there are a few restrictions, usually due to the nature of the object, or staff availability.

Research visits

Researchers wishing to study objects or records in our collections should make an appointment in advance. Find out more or download a research visit request form (Word 150 kb, opens in a new tab).

Phone and email enquiries

Ask us about our collections or London's history. We don’t have the resources to undertake detailed research on your behalf. We aim to reply within 20 working days of receipt.

Object identifications

We can only help with the identification of objects made or found in Greater London. If you would like to bring in an object for identification, please contact us to make an appointment. It is not always possible for us to provide object identifications via email.

The Museum of London does not offer a valuation service.
