What will you discover within the archive boxes?

 Today is International Archives Day! Though you might not know it, the Museum of London is home to several archives. Each contains a section of our mass of collections – stored for research and future displays. Much of it is stored inside quite plain looking boxes like this one, but looks can be deceiving…

In the past on the Museum of London blog we’ve looked at some of the incredible, little known collections stored in our Archaeological Archive in Hackney. From tiny Roman trinkets to ancient gems, to surprising animal remains. What you might not know, however, is that the museum houses other archives.

At Museum of London Docklands, you can discover both the Port of London Authority Archive (PLA) and the Sainsburys Archive

Or if it’s Museology you’re after and how a museum operates, our Business Archive is a great place to start.
