Museum of London Docklands - Roman adventures this summer

Free Roman fun all summer long
Do you love the Romans? Are you fascinated by their gladiator games and ancient traditions? Have you always dreamed of wearing the famous white toga of the Roman elite?

If you can’t get enough of the Roman way of doing things, then join us in August for an exclusive book launch and signing, family summer shows and a full exhibition featuring over 250 rare items from Roman London.

And remember, kids eat free in Rum & Sugar, our award-winning Caribbean restaurant right next door to the museum!*
What's on
Caroline Lawrence book launch
Sat 18 Aug
Museum of London Docklands
This Saturday, meet the beloved best selling children's author and listen to an exclusive reading from her nail-biting new book, 'The Girl with the Ivory Knife'.

Caroline's new book takes inspiration from The Lant Street Teenager, a skeleton discovered in East London, whose ivory knife is on display in our Roman Dead exhibition.

Summer shows all August
15 - 31 Aug
Museum of London Docklands
Inspired by our Roman Dead exhibition, enjoy a fun afternoon recreating rituals by using rattles, masks and other fun props to help Clara, our resident Roman spirit who is trapped in modern London on her journey into the afterlife.

Taking places three times a day between Wednesday and Saturday throughout August, these free shows are a perfect way of spending the summer holidays, whilst also getting away from the heat outside!
