Museum London was established in 1940 and operated from the London Public Library until 1980 when architect Raymond Moriyama was commissioned to design its current home at the forks of the Thames River in downtown London, Ontario. In 1989, the then London Regional Art Gallery amalgamated with the London Historical Museum and the historic Eldon House and Gardens creating what is known today as Museum London.
Museum London provides young people with the unique opportunity to explore the rich heritage of their community, and to discover the visual arts. Through original artwork and historic artifacts, students participate in one-of-a-kind experiential learning opportunities outside of the classroom. The educational impact of experiential learning and the value of the visual arts have been well documented. Museum London offers a unique setting where education is meaningful and fun!
