Museums and Heritage Show at the Olympia

With London’s array of cultural and heritage attractions, there is no better place to hold the UK’s leading trade exhibition for the world of museums, galleries and heritage visitor attractions. This year’s two-day Museums and Heritage Show will be held at the Olympia on April 29th and 30th and is free to attend. If you are involved in the industry anywhere in the UK, this is a must-attend event, with plenty of exciting exhibitions, inspiring talks and expert technology on display. Featuring the industry’s latest innovations, it will help you bring history and heritage to life at your establishment. The Strand Palace Hotel is an easy tube ride to the Olympia, and our concierge desk can help you organise your visit to the show.

What to expect

The Museum and Heritage Show helps industry suppliers and operators with business and management solutions, ideas and inspiration. The show is renowned for its interesting and thought-provoking seminars and world-class tools to use back at your own organisation. There will be free talks, features, cultural attraction experts and sector suppliers to speak to, and plenty of networking opportunities.

The event takes place in the heart of London, within easy reach of the Strand Palace Hotel, at the famous Olympia building. The Olympia was recently renovated to create a brighter, more open space – perfect for exhibitions like the Museums and Heritage Show.
