The London Film Museum, founded and created by Jonathan Sands in February 2008, is a museum dedicated to the British film industry. It was previously known as The Movieum of London and was originally situated in County Hall, but moved to a Covent Garden location in April 2012.
It exhibits original props, costumes and sets from feature films. There is also a section on how films are made, including information on all the major studios. Original pieces include costumes and props from British films, 'Little Nellie' from You Only Live Twice, an original Superman meteor, the Rank Organisation gong used in their opening titles, and armour made by Terry English. There is also a corridor explaining how films are made with the chance to talk to those involved.
Two previous special exhibitions have been:
Ray Harryhausen - Myths & Legends. This 2010 exhibition featured original creatures from Ray Harryhausen's films including Pegasus, Medusa, and Talos.
Charlie Chaplin - The Great Londoner. This covered his early life in Lambeth, and features Chaplin's original bowler hat and cane with storage boxes.Since March 2014, the Museum has been dedicated to the Bond in Motion - The Largest Official Collection of James Bond Vehicles exhibition. This features cars, other vehicles and original props from the film series.

Located very near Covent Garden. Hadn't done any research on the venue, dropped in on a very cold and blustery day. If you are an 007 fan you will love it. Lots of vehicles - especially Aston Martins.... more »
An absolute must for any James Bond 007 fan, it has all the cars from the Aston Martins to Roger Moore's 2CV and plenty in-between, all manor of props from jet packs to little Nellie, has a nice cafe on site and toilets, also has a real good gift shop. No need to buy too in advance. A very well presented exhibition. Obviously no parking as it's in the centre of London but we'll served by bus, taxi or tube go enjoy go on what are you waiting for 😁👍
Really liked this place even though I came across it by chance. A great way to spend an hour or so. The descriptions and extra details about the cars and scenes are super interesting and informative and gift shop is great as well! If you like Bond, don’t miss out on this spot!
