About

The Museum of London tells the story of the capital from its first settlers to modern times. We have sites in central London, Docklands and in Hackney. Museum of London, London Wall: our galleries based at the Museum of London in central London vividly tell the story of the city and its people. We receive over a million visitors each year and hold the largest archaeological archive in Europe. We care for more than two million objects in our collections. The Museum of London Archaeological Archive: the Archaeological Archive based at Mortimer Wheeler House in Shoreditch, Hackney, holds information on excavations in London over the last hundred years. The Centre for Human Bioarchaeology: part of the Archaeological Archive, the Centre for Human Bioarchaeology curates and researches skeletal remains. For information about collections and research contact the Centre for Human Bioarchaeology. Museum of London Docklands: our port and river collection is displayed at the Museum of London Docklands in a 200-year-old warehouse located close to the river Thames. From Roman settlement to the development of Canary Wharf, the long history of the capital as a port is revealed through stories of trade, migration and commerce.
