LONDON.- One million people visited the Museum of London and Museum of London Docklands between 1 April 2014 and 16 February 2015 it was announced today. This is the second consecutive year and only the second time in the museum’s 40 year history that the attraction has been visited by over a million people in a twelve-month period. This puts the museum on course to exceed its footfall target for the year.

In comparison the Museum of London and Museum of London Docklands together welcomed 615,000 people in the twelve months between April 2012 and March 2013.

Commenting on the results Sharon Ament, Director of the Museum of London, said:

“The past year has been one of the most exciting in the Museum of London’s history and this has been reflected in our exceptional results. It continues to be of utmost importance that while numbers grow, visitor experience and our public programme remain best-in-class, complemented by outstanding academic research and leading schools activities. Everybody involved with the Museum of London, from staff to volunteers and funders, deserves to be exceptionally proud of this achievement. Now we’ve laid this strong foundation, I look forward to telling the world about our plans for the future for the Museum of London later in the year. Suffice to say it will be fitting of the world’s greatest city.”

An exhibition of photographs by Christina Broom, the first female press photographer, will open at Museum of London Docklands in June. The next major exhibition for the Museum of London is to be announced in March and it will open in October.
