The Exploring 20th century London Project (UK)

The Exploring 20th century London ProjectJointly funded by the MLA Designation Challenge Fund and the London Museums Hub, Phase I of the Exploring 20th century London Project is a partnership project between four museums in London:

* Museum of London (MoL)
* London Transport Museum (LTM)
* Jewish Museum, London
* Museum of Croydon

The project's aim is to make the collections held by these museums more accessible, but to do so in a way that links the objects in the collections with the broader history of London. All objects and images featured on the site speak of the real events and experiences of twentieth-century London. The content covers different types of objects: from Routemaster buses to architectural designs; from 1970s platform shoes to oral history recordings; from paintings and artworks to family photographs. It also includes a mass of supporting information. Overall, the site is intended to be a 'learning resource', providing a large quantity of material which people can use to pursue their own interests and projects
