Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

This museum tells the history of the borough of Islington and its residents, through artefacts including books stolen from Islington libraries by Joe Orton and his lover Kenneth Halliwell, a bust of Lenin which had to be removed from Finsbury Town Hall because it was repeatedly defaced, plus letters and recordings from immigrants and residents caught in the world wars. Other local heroes associated with the borough are honoured in the museum's exploration of the political and ethical credentials of the area, including women's health pioneer Marie Stopes and eminent feminist pioneer Mary Wollstonecraft.
