Museum Redevelopment Project

Islington Museum is about to redesign its permanent gallery and facilities.

Islington Museum was established by a team of volunteers, at Finsbury Town Hall in 1988, before moving to its current home at 245 St John Street, in 2008.

The displays tell many fascinating local stories and showcase a variety of interesting objects but need updating to better reflect and serve our audiences in Islington, today.

Over the next few months we will be working with local groups, communities and visitors to find out what you think about the museum and its facilities. Your ideas and reflections will shape the designs we put together for the future Islington Museum!
