Telling our stories

A SEND school student creates their own London story during a Museum of London project.

An unmissable story of a city and its people

The Museum of London may be closing for a while but why not give your pupils a new perspective on our city by visiting our other site, the Museum of London Docklands?

The Museum of London Docklands brings the history of the docks and the River Thames to life. Our galleries chart how the area was transformed into the Docklands we know today. Our galleries and resources will inspire students of all ages, including those from special schools or SEND units and supplementary schools.

Our location near Canary Wharf means we're easily accessible by Tube, Elizabeth line, bus, DLR and even boat! Why not make a day of it and explore the quayside and local area while you're here?

Find out more by visiting our Museum of London Docklands page - we can't wait to see you! You're assured of a quality experience - we've won awards for our provision.
