Museum of London Archaeological Archive access and enquiries

Make an appointment to view collections at the Archaeological Archive. Here's everything you need to arrange your visit.

Research visits

The archaeological archive is based at Mortimer Wheeler House, between Islington and Hackney. The closest tube stations are Angel and Old Street. Researchers may visit free of charge, but by appointment only. Access will be limited between 2 January and 3 July 2017, while we carry out a full stock-check. Visits must therefore be booked with at least 4 weeks’ notice.

Appointments are available Mon-Fri only.

University group visits

You can arrange a behind-the-scenes visit for your university group. The visit includes a full tour of the stores, object handling and the opportunity to repack archaeological material. Tours last two hours and cost £100 (plus VAT) for up to 12 students or £125 (plus VAT) for 13-20 students. Contact us to discuss themes and to make a booking.

School visits

We run free workshops and activities for both primary and secondary schools at the Archive. You'll need to choose a session and book ahead. Search the range of school activities we offer here. You'll find booking information within each session listing.
