Security at the Museum

The Museum of London and the Museum of London Docklands have introduced visitor and bag searches.

To keep everyone in the museum safe and to protect our collections, you and your belongings may be searched on entering the museum.

The staff conducting the searches carry Body Worn Cameras which record sound as well as images.

No sharp objects are allowed into the museum (including knives and pen knives).

Please note that suitcases, cabin bags and other large items of luggage will not be allowed in the museum, as we do not currently have lockers or a cloakroom facility available.

We really appreciate your co-operation, thank you.
