Museum of London, UK

The Museum of London project will relocate the museum from London Wall to West Smithfield, creating a new, more spacious museum that revitalises two historic market structures, while the existing market continues operating in the adjacent buildings.

The museum aims to be a ’must see’ destination for both Londoners and tourists, and will service over 2.25 million visitors per year.
