Monday May 12 2008 saw the opening of the New Islington Museum, which tells the story of Islington's past as it has never been told before.
You can find the new museum underneath the Finsbury Library, on St. John Street.
It houses a gallery about Islington's history, with nine themes, ranging from wartime to leisure and childhood.
It also boasts a unique collection of items, including a bust of Lenin, who lived and worked in Clerkenwell.
