The museum seeks to make the collections accessible through an
intensive programme of short and long term loans to a number of partner
institutions in London, the UK and abroad.
As we prepare to move to a new home in West Smithfield in the coming years, the museum has a moratorium on lending from the collection, effective from 1 July 2020. This will allow us to focus on the important preparation work needed to relocate the collection.
All lending commitments which have already been agreed will be honoured. We expect to re-open the lending programme within 6 months of opening our new museum in 2024, and will provide further details in due course.
If you would like to look at licensing images from the collection as an alternative, please contact our picture library.
Our policy, costs and contacts remain below for use by venues with whom we have already agreed loans.

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.
