Support the museum’s core work in research, exhibitions and learning while enjoying special access to our collections, private viewings, and bespoke events.

The Society of Londoners is a group of fascinating individuals invested in London. Membership offers an incredible opportunity to make a charitable impact at the Museum of London, while being connected with London’s rich history, its vibrant present and its exciting future.

We want the museum to be a place where members come to engage, debate and share their experience and ideas with other Londoners so that, together, we can make London the best it can be.


Our four levels of annual support offer ever closer interaction with the museum:

  • Young Members (18-40): £1,000 per year or £79 monthly
  • Society of Londoners: £1,750 per year or £145 monthly
  • Visionaries: £5,000 per year
  • Luminaries: £10,000 per year

From Young Members to Luminaries, all Society of Londoners members are invited to contribute to conversations about topics both within and without the museum walls. We want our members to feel truly invested in everything that the Museum of London represents, and to witness the impact of their support, both philanthropic and personal.

Events Programme

An exciting programme of events and trips will take you across the city and behind-the-scenes at the Museum, whether it’s to visit our 26,000 object strong Costume Stores, a private visit to 10 Downing Street, a curator-led tour of a hidden Roman bathhouse, or a hard hat site visit to Farringdon Crossrail. Visionaries and Luminaries receive additional invitations to our Director’s Lunches and Chairman’s Dinners, with a fascinating roster of speakers including Sir David Cannadine, Lucy Worsley OBE, David Olusoga and Sir Max Hastings.
