Museum of London Docklands

The Museum of London Docklands' exciting galleries tell the story of the docks and the River Thames from the arrival of the Romans to the construction of Canary Wharf.

Part of the West India Docks complex on the Isle of Dogs, we are home to London’s only dedicated gallery on the transatlantic slave trade, the recreated streets of London’s nineteenth-century ‘Sailortown’, and wide-ranging objects and stories from the Second World War. We also have a hands-on children’s gallery, Mudlarks, which is perfect for families and is bookable for schools from 10am-2pm during term time.

We offer a wide range of interactive sessions for schools supporting History, Geography and STEM as well as dedicated learning programmes for special schools and Early Years/Foundation Stage. We also offer a range of lively and engaging ‘at your school’ sessions and shows for primary schools in the boroughs of Greenwich, Lewisham, Newham, Southwark and Tower Hamlets.
