A strategic plan to take the museum to 2023.
At the Museum of London and the Museum of London Docklands, we connect people with the lived experience of London. The story we tell is one of place and people, evolving through interaction and exchange. We capture the capital’s complexity and contrasts through the London Collection. Through all our activities we contribute to London’s cultural, educational, international and economic impetus. We summarise what we do in three words: We Are London. It is at once our aspiration and our mandate.

Following the recent advice from the government and Public Health England surrounding COVID-19, the Museum of London and the Museum of London Docklands will be closed to the public as of Thursday 19 March.
The health and wellbeing of our visitors, staff and community are of utmost importance to us and this decision is in response to increasing concerns surrounding COVID-19.
We will continue to closely review the advice from Public Health England and monitor the current situation of COVID-19 to keep people up to date on our plans.
