About the Museum

Redbridge Museum explores the many different people, places and events which make up the history of our Borough. Since opening in 2000, we have worked with hundreds of local people, produced more than 70 exhibitions and displays, attracted more than 200,000 visitors, held over 600 family activities, and taught 33,518 school pupils. The museum runs a programme of events and activities throughout the year, from talks and films through to crafts and treasure hunts, there really is something for all ages.
