Welcome! We’re Open!

Welcome to the local museum of Islington, where we aim to bring the history of our borough to life for everyone who lives, works, or visits here! We’re a museum for the community, and we want to represent your stories through our collection. So come by for a visit and share your Islington memories!

Check out our exhibitions, events, and projects to see what’s on in the museum.

Islington Museum is part of the Islington Heritage Service, which includes the Local History Centre and the Cally Clock Tower project.
