About Museum of London

The Museum of London is an award-winning, charitable institution funded by various organisations and individuals, including the City of London Corporation and the Greater London Authority. After 45 years, the Museum of London has officially closed its doors at the London Wall site. This marks the start of the highly anticipated move to its new home at Smithfield, where it will reopen in 2026 as the London Museum. As the leading museum for London, they tell the story of the world’s greatest city and its people. It is an exciting time in their history as they plan for their move to a new home in Smithfield.

By 2028 Museum of London will have become the London Museum, a shared place in the middle of it all where all our city’s stories cross and collide. Visitors to Smithfield will be able to explore the historic and contemporary galleries in the General Market or head to West Poultry Avenue for cutting edge, real-time multimedia exhibits. The Research Centre will be established, and work on the temporary exhibition spaces, learning centre, and collections stores in the Poultry Market will be well underway. Meanwhile, as planning for Smithfield swings into delivery, London Museum Docklands will move to centre stage. Commercially successful exhibitions will enhance the offer to visitors and sit alongside new ways of telling the globally important history of the transatlantic slave trade and London’s docks. In its Docklands home, London Museum will become a more meaningful and powerful place for all nearby residents.
