London Film Museum

London Film Museum

This interactive museum (formerly known as the Movieum of London) dedicated to the British film industry opened in February 2008 at County Hall on the South Bank.

It tells the story of how movies are made and where to find the locations of famous shots.

You will also find original props and costumes from favourites including Gladiator, Superman, Star Wars and Batman amongst others.

The displays - in the panelled corridors of the former home of London's government - have been put together with an obvious passion for film.

The London Film Museum is the latest venture of Jonathan Sands whose Weird & Wonderful company – originally a movie prop hire business based at Elstree – was behind the 2007 Star Wars exhibition and the ongoing London Death Trap attraction at County Hall.

London has been without a film museum since the British Film Institute closed the Museum of the Moving Image in 1999. The BFI is planning to build a new national film centre on the South Bank, probably on the controversial Hungerford car park site next to Jubilee Gardens.
