Commenting
on the record year Sharon Ament, Director of the Museum of London,
said: “We’ve had our busiest year ever and these results reflect
the incredible array of sell-out exhibitions and events covering
everything from London’s criminal past, tattoo culture and the First
World War. The Museum of London Docklands has done particularly well and
exceeded all expectations. With this in mind we’re
going to continue to provide exciting content that resonates with both
Londoners and visitors alike to grow our visitor numbers, expand our
programme of events and hit our target of working with every London
school child. Next year is shaping up to be even
better and I can’t wait to see our next set of results.”

A major draw to the Museum of London this year has been the blockbuster ‘Crime Museum Uncovered’ which showcases the Met Police’s previously
unseen archives. Fire! Fire! is the museum’s next big, immersive
exhibition. It opens in July and is set to attract families and
schools, as well as adults, to explore that fateful year of 1666 when
London was set ablaze.  Highlights at The Museum of
London Docklands in the coming year include a new gallery, No. 1 Warehouse, opening on 25 March which will tell the story of the museum’s historic building itself and
Travel Photographer of the Year which opens in July.
