Museum of London - two new major exhibitions at the Museum of London this year

Roman Dead
Fri 25 May – Sun 28 Oct 2018

From May, arrange group visits to Roman Dead, the latest major exhibition at the Museum of London Docklands.

Roman Dead explores how ancient Londoners approached death by exploring ancient burial rites and rituals, as well as looking at “grave goods”, the items that families of the deceased left in coffins to help their loved ones in the afterlife.

Examine over 200 artefacts excavated from ancient burials sites, including the Southwark sarcophagus, which will be on public display for the first time. Reflect on what these extraordinary items reveal about who Roman Londoners were and the questions they raise about the city’s diverse past.

Self-guided visits can be enhanced with a free audio tour, accessed exclusively via museum WiFi. Alternatively, groups of 10 or more can book an exclusive curator tour to discover more about the items on display and how the exhibition was created.

London Nights
11 May – 11 Nov 2018
Museum of London
Explore London after dark in our new, evocative photography exhibition, opening in May. Drawing from the Museum's extensive collection and loaned works, 50 artists, including Alvin Langdon Coburn, Bill Brandt, Rut Blees Luxemburg, Tish Murtha and Nick Turpin, will be represented through over 200 works.

London Nights shines a spotlight on how the nocturnal capital has changed over time, the ways in which Londoners experience their city after dark and how photographers have captured it all.   

Introductory curator tours are available for groups on request.
Votes for Women
2 February 2018 - 6 January 2019
Museum of London
Celebrating 100 years of the Representation of the People act, our new Votes for Women display reveals  inspiring stories of  women involved in the Suffragette’s Deeds Not Words campaign. Explore iconic items in our collection, before watching a powerful, original film exploring the Suffragette movement and its legacy.

Make sure to combine a visit with a trip to see our permanent display in the People’s City gallery. Enhance your experience with an exclusive guided tour for groups exploring the changing position of women in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
