Did you know that the Museum of London Docklands is located in what was once one of the most important ports on the planet? Learn about the capital's past as one of the world's largest trading cities, at the docks that were once London's gateway to the globe.

Situated in a beautiful, 200 year old warehouse just a short walk from Canary Wharf, the Museum of London Docklands explores the lives of the many people that came to the city from all over the world, transforming this part of East London. Immerse yourself in the winding streets and alleys of our recreation of dockside Victorian London in Sailortown. Find out how the transatlantic slave and sugar trade shaped London in the London, Sugar & Slavery gallery. Discover Mudlarks, the free interactive play area especially designed for under 5s and their carers. Take part in playful opportunities for children and families throughout the galleries, from a miniature Sainsbury's shop to a tool bench for shipbuilding.

Finish your day out with a lunch overlooking the water at Rum & Sugar, our restaurant with a delicious, award-winning Caribbean menu where kids eat free!* Museum of London Docklands is located in West India Quay, an historic dockside destination, with a range of bars, restaurants and activities to enjoy. *Available for each child accompanied by an adult ordering a main course from the a la carte menu.
