Planning your visit

The Museum of London welcomes university groups for tours, self-guided visits and specialist talks. Group visits to the museum’s archive and individual research visits are also available upon request.

What can we offer?

We can support the curriculum in various areas, ranging from archaeology, medieval history, fashion and geography to visual culture, conservation, the transatlantic slave trade, literature, politics and museum studies.

Going behind the scenes

Higher education groups can also request one-off behind-the-scenes visits, workshops or talks led by our skilled museum staff.

For these, do give at least two months’ notice so we can ensure staff and room availability. A charge will usually be made for these special activities; email [email protected] to find out more and discuss your requirements.

London Archaeological Archive

This can be visited by appointment only. Researchers can contact the archive to book a free research visit.

HE groups have the chance to explore the stores and handle and repack objects in a behind-the-scenes visit. Contact the archive to find out more about these opportunities.
