The Museum of London Docklands is part of the Museum of London Group, which includes the Museum of London.

From Roman settlement to Docklands' regeneration, unlock the history of London's river, port and people in this historic warehouse. Discover a wealth of objects from whale bones to WWII gas masks in state-of-the-art galleries, including Mudlarks, an interactive area for kids; Sailortown, an atmospheric re-creation of 19th century riverside Wapping; and London, Sugar & Slavery, which reveals the city’s involvement in the transatlantic slave trade.

The building is over 200 years old and was used as a sugar warehouse. It has undergone excellent renovation work and was opened on 10 June 2003 by the Queen. Many original features remain including much of the timber flooring which is even older than the building.
