The Museum of Croydon tells the story of Croydon from 1800 to the present day. Over 250 objects are beautifully displayed and interpreted through the voices of local people.
Originally opened in 1995 as Lifetimes, the galleries were completely re-developed with support from the Heritage Lottery Fund between 2004 and 2006. The new galleries were designed by architects FAT and re-opened in September 2006. They won the FX International Interior Design Awards: Best museum & gallery, 2007.
For opening times and access information for this gallery please see our 'Visit Us' page.
Each area of the gallery contains five, touchscreen kiosks, which you can use to find our more about the objects and listen to the stories connected with them, as well as a hands-on interactive.
You will also visit the Croydon Now display which changes every four months to show current objects, issues and community work.
