Why work at the Museum of London?

The Museum of London tells the story of the capital from its first settlers to modern times. We have sites in the City of London, Docklands and in Hackney.

Telling London's story

Explore the history of London

At the Museum of London and the Museum of London Docklands, we connect people with the lived experience of London. People are the subject of our museum, as much as the city itself and our own exceptional staff are central to our success.

Every time a new skyscraper is built in London, or a new train line tunnelled, we discover more about Londoners’ lives throughout the ages. At our Archaeological Archive, we store a collection which includes artefacts from excavations as well as archaeologist’s records and plans for our archive.

As the people who make up the city change, so do we. The coming years will be an unprecedented time for us. We are undertaking the biggest project in the museum’s history: to build a new museum for London, in West Smithfield. There has never been a more exciting time to join the Museum of London.

Like London, working here will provide you with the opportunity to come together with positive and professional people who have a wide range of skills, abilities, experiences and perspectives, all of which we celebrate.

Join the Museum of London and your skills, abilities, experiences and perspectives will help us to achieve our vision to become ‘We Are London’.

Director Sharon Ament talks about her vision for the museum.
