Museum of London

Artifacts and interactives chronicle London's history from pre-Roman to modern times


    Step inside the Museum of London for an unforgettable journey through the capital’s turbulent past. Discover prehistoric London, see how the city changed under Romans and Saxons, wonder at medieval London and examine the tumultuous years when London was ravaged by civil wars, plague and fire.

    Then venture into the Galleries of Modern London where you can walk the streets of Victorian London, take a stroll in recreated pleasure gardens and marvel at the magnificent Lord Mayor’s Coach.

    From 9 October 2015, never-before-seen-objects from the Metropolitan Police’s Crime Museum will go on display in a major new exhibition.
