The Museum of Croydon is a brilliant, award-winning, fun place to spend a couple of hours and to discover the real history of Croydon.

Use the touchscreen computers to explore displays and learn about the lives and experiences of people who have lived or worked in Croydon.

Follow our fun Family Trail, exploring the galleries with Iggy the iguana. You can press buttons on the touchscreen computers to choose and listen to different stories. Why not use the building blocks to build a 1930s house?

Riesco Gallery of Chinese Ceramics is a stunning collection of Chinese ceramics dating from 2500 BC to the 19th century. High points include amazing Tang dynasty tomb models and beautiful Ming dynasty bowls. The collection was left to the London Borough of Croydon by local businessman Raymond Riesco.

Families at the Riesco Gallery can enjoy touch dragon-themed soft toys, play with the building blocks, puppets, colouring sheets, puzzles, word searches, reading books and of course hunt for the beautiful ceramics decorated with dragons!
