We have embarked on an extraordinary journey to create a new museum for London. It will sit in atmospheric but currently dilapidated market buildings, at the heart of one of the capital’s most historic and creative quarters, Smithfield, forming an integral part of the City of London Corporation’s Culture Mile.

This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to reconceive what a museum for London can be. We need a museum that is just as compelling as London itself – a shared place for Londoners and visitors from around the world.

We’re excited to be sharing our latest proposals for the new museum and would love to hear what you think.
