Museum of London - We’ve got the whole family covered this summer

Fun-filled family events this summer
Treat the family to a history lesson like no other this summer. We have a range of events taking place throughout August exploring London’s rich heritage, perfect for keeping both the young and young-at-heart entertained.

Hear stories straight from one of Victorian London's legendary toshers or get up close and personal with some of London's oldest artefacts.

Round off your visit with a bite to eat at our restaurant, London Wall Bar and Kitchen, where kids eat free!*
