The two Museums, of London, and of London Docklands have both confirmed they will reopen from 19th May, and are extending exhibitions that were to have closed during the lockdown.

The Museum of London’s exhibition, Dub London: Bassline of a City, celebrating dub reggae music and culture in the capital will be extended until 5 September 2021.

The reopening also means that Havering Hoard: A Bronze Age Mystery at the Museum of London Docklands will be extended until 22 August 2021.

This free major exhibition explores the largest Bronze Age hoard ever discovered in London with all 453 tools, weapons and other objects unearthed and on display to the public for the very first time.

Reopening the Museum of London Docklands also includes the extension of the Krios of Sierra Leone display at the Museum of London Docklands until 4 July 2021. The Krios of Sierra Leone explores the unique and largely untold history, heritage and culture of the Krio people of Sierra Leone by highlighting the architecture, language, lifestyle and traditions of the Krio community.

Both museums remain free to visit, but you will need to book a free ticket before visiting.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.
