The Cuming Museum

The Cuming Museum comprises the worldwide and local collections of the Cuming family as well as local and social history collected by the borough during the 20th century. We also care for an extensive art collection. We are the sister service to Southwark Local History Library and Archives on Borough High Street.

We’d love to have you visit us but unfortunately the Cuming museum’s galleries are currently closed due to a fire which affected the building housing the displays in March 2013.

However we are still extremely busy. Our collections are safe and secure and our projects, events and activity programmes are thriving.

Click on the buttons below to go to our online collections website, view our object of the month or find out about our latest events and activities.

The Cuming museum will return to the former Walworth Town Hall building when it reopens in a few years. In the meantime we are working closely with colleagues in the libraries, arts and heritage services and developing new projects.

Look out for consultation opportunities concerning the redevelopment of the former town hall building during this year.

You can still contact us through the email and phone contacts on this website.  You can also join our mailing list to get regular updates about our work and our events.
