You’ll be there with us on our journey to Smithfield

The Museum of London will soon be moving to a new site at West Smithfield, which offers a once-in-a-generation opportunity to redefine what a museum for London can offer and achieve. Not only will you be supporting this extraordinary project, but you’ll be kept up-to-date on its development every step of the way.

You'll be helping us build our collections for decades to come

Even while we were closed, we were still committed to collecting objects and experiences for London. Collecting COVID, part of our move towards being the Museum for London during the lockdown, shows our commitment to collecting the experiences of Londoners living through the pandemic, and the online content we made available meant we were still able to support London communities during this difficult time. Your contribution will help us to continue this vital work online and offline.

Member benefits Resized.jpg

From free, unlimited fast track entry to all ticketed exhibitions at both our sites, to a special programme of Friends events, to exclusive discounts in our shop and food outlets, there are a fantastic range of exclusive perks for members.
