The Museum of Croydon is a museum located within the Croydon Clocktower arts facility in Central Croydon, England. It showcases historical and cultural artefacts relating to the London Borough of Croydon and its people. The museum is owned and run by Croydon Council.


It is located on the upper ground floor of Croydon Clocktower, but also incorporates the Riesco Gallery, on the lower ground floor, which displays Roman and Anglo-Saxon collections and a collection of Chinese ceramics. The museum originally opened under the name Lifetimes in 1995; and re-opened under its present name, following a major redevelopment and redesign, in 2006. Admission is free, and many of the displays are hands-on and interactive.

  • Really interesting display about the development and evolution of Croydon. Well worth a visit. The café in the building is very good, and good value for money. Excellent coffee!!
  • I grew up around Croydon, and was intrigued to see what the Museum of Croydon had to offer. In line with several of the other TripAdvisor reviews for it, I was really impressed by the museum and everything it had to offer. The museum staff went out of their way to make your visit as pleasant as possible, and the exhibits were informative and very well presented. Even though I don't live that close by, I plan to make a return visit soon.
