The entire collection of the Museum of London is a Designated Collection of national importance.

The museum of London charts the history of the capital and its people from the prehistoric period to the present day. Its galleries and exhibitions make sensitive use of both traditional and modern interactive techniques, and the museum has long been committed to educational and outreach services.

The extensive collections contain highly significant ranges of archaeological material from London, and include the London Archaeological Archive of finds and records from over 25 years of excavations. Social and working history collections, costume and decorative arts, paintings, pictures and photographs illustrate London's development since 1700, and the museum's contemporary collecting policy seeks to reflect the ever-changing pattern of London life in London.

The collections are divided between two departments:

The Department of Archaeological Collections and Archive: Material relating to London from the prehistoric period to c.1700. This includes the Archaeological Archive, housing material from archaeological excavations in London.

The Department of History Collections: Material relating to London from c.1700 to the present day.

The City Gallery

  • 1 November 2014 — 1 November 2018 *on now

Showcasing our most iconic treasure.

The centrepiece of our City Gallery is the magnificent Lord Mayor’s Coach, which is now more than 250 years old. Iconic and beautifully crafted, it was commissioned in 1757 for that year’s Lord Mayor's Show, which it still leaves the Museum every November to participate in.

This spectacular gallery celebrates the City of London itself through displays that showcase this area’s unique character, a place where ancient traditions exist side-by-side with cutting edge architecture.

The lives of City people and the activities associated with this part of the capital can be seen in objects ranging from a coachman’s state uniform and the Sheriff of London’s badge to a Blackberry owned by the Lord Mayor in 2008-9.

World City: 1950s-today

  • 1 November 2014 — 1 November 2018 *on now

After facing poverty and war, London emerged as a rejuvenated, vibrant modern city for the masses.

London became a new kind of world city. A youth and multicultural revolution saw Londoners absorb new values and claim new rights. By the end of the 20th century, the diversity of its people was at the heart of London’s identity.

Homes were transformed by new forms of entertainment, technology and fashion. Television puppets Bill and Ben delighted London’s children in the 1950s, the first Apple Mac computers appeared in Londoners’ homes in the 1980s and fashion in the capital shifted from Biba and Mary Quant in the 1960s to Alexander McQueen and Tatty Devine in the 2000s.

As well as looking back, we face up to London’s future. One enormous image imagines what London will look like in years to come while a flowing interactive river lets you debate the issues affecting London today, from burial space to climate change.

People's City: 1850s-1940s

  • 1 November 2014 — 1 November 2018 *on now

How London’s rapid expansion created a wealthy but divided city.

By the 1850s, London was the world’s wealthiest city but success came at a price. Population growth created a divided city, with Londoners living in separate worlds of rich and poor.

This was a time of conflict when workers united to fight for their rights, imprisoned Suffragettes went on hunger strike and communist and fascist groups emerged as the nation moved closer to war. It was also a time of wealth and glamour.

The social divide is reflected in the galleries. A room wallpapered with Charles Booth’s poverty maps sits alongside a stunning art deco lift from Selfridges, a glamorous symbol of the emerging West End.

As you leave the dazzling lights of the theatres and restaurants, enter a dark and immersive war room decorated starkly with a suspended bomb, showing a blitzed city unsure of its survival.

Expanding City: 1666-1850s

  • 1 November 2014 — 1 November 2018 *on now

Discover a city rebuilding itself after the Great Fire.

This gallery explores London’s rapid growth after 1666. The centrepiece is a 240 year old printing press that spills news stories across the gallery in an innovative collision of new and old technologies.

Admire museum treasures, including Nelson's sword, an original door from Newgate Prison and the extraordinary aerial view of the 1806 Rhinebeck Panorama, as you walk over cases embedded underfoot.

London was the capital of a vast empire and this global influence was seen in the goods that Londoners could buy, from Indian cashmere to fans from China. Similarly, immigrants brought new skills that benefited the business and cultural life of the city. In size and population, wealth and power, there had never been a city like it.

War, Plague and Fire (1550s-1660s)

  • 1 November 2014 — 1 November 2018 *on now

A turbulent time of great expansion and terrible devastation.

The War, Plague and Fire gallery tells the story of London from Elizabethan times, through the ravages of the English Civil Wars and the cataclysmic disasters of the Great Plague of 1665 and the Great Fire of 1666.

Rich displays of artefacts and documents bring to life the key events of this period from the execution of King Charles I to the 100,000 deaths of the Great Plague and the destruction of the Great Fire, which razed a third of the city.

Medieval London

  • 1 November 2014 — 1 November 2018 *on now

Discover the story of London from the collapse of the Roman city in the 400s to the accession of Queen Elizabeth I in 1558.

During the medieval period the city of London was destroyed by invaders, racked by famine, fire and disease, and torn apart by religious and political controversy. Still it grew to become one of the largest, wealthiest and most important cities in Europe and a place of truly international status.

London's story is illustrated by over 1300 exhibits, which include children's toys, fraudulent dice and a gold crucifix containing what purported to be a fragment of the True Cross. Many items come from recent archaeological digs, where deep waterlogged deposits along the Thames have preserved England's finest surviving collection of medieval leatherwork.

Don't miss: a gold and garnet brooch from the mid 600s, found in a grave in Covent Garden
stunning late 15th century altar paintings believed to have come from a chapel at Westminster Abbey
wince-inducing pointed shoes that were the height of fashion in the 1380s

Discover what life was like in Londinium and see everyday Roman objects from homeware to precious jewellery.

The Romans built the city where London now stands, bridging the Thames and constructing the roads that connected Londinium with the rest of the country. From around AD 50 to 410 – a period as long as that which separates Queen Elizabeth I from our present Queen – this was the largest city in Britannia, a vital port through which goods were imported from all over the world.

Don't miss: a Roman leather bikini
marble sculptures from the Temple of Mithras, among the finest works of art ever found in Roman Britain
a rare limestone sarcophagus which contained the remains of a 4th century woman who came to London from the south west of the Roman Empire.

Fortunata and the Four Gods

An interactive story for students with special educational needs told as a chant, in call-and-response. The resource includes teachers notes on how to use the story with your class. The main
storyteller (in this case, the voice on the story’s audio track) calls a line of the story and everyone
responds by repeating the line back. This style of telling stories was developed as a teaching strategy
by Keith Park, a teacher, author and storyteller, as a way of including pupils with severe and profound
learning disabilities in larger group activities, and make drama and literacy work more accessible.

SEN accessible object pages

These accessible object pages aim to help students with learning difficulties interact online with objects in our collection. They use a variety of media to interpret the objects so pupils can explore a 3D object by zooming into it and moving it around. There is a short written caption along with a key-word signing video of this caption with audio. Where possible, an image is also provided to give the object more context.

The Postcodes Project: London's Neighbourhood Stories

http://www.museumoflondon.org.uk/postcodes

The Museum of London holds a wide range of objects from across the city. To highlight some of their fascinating local stories we have selected a single object for each London postcode area. The site can be used in various ways: taking a themed tour, selecting an area on the map, looking for a specific place or using the arrows to move around. You can add to the richness of the site by submitting your own local stories.
