‘Visiting the MML provided my students with an excellent introduction to viewing and using archival resources. The variety and richness of the sources available was eye opening for my students who loved the atmosphere …There were some really interesting teaching and learning points which helped the students gain a broader understanding of the topics they were studying.’
(Alan Kunna, History teacher, Newham Sixth Form College)
'Our A-Level History and Politics students were delighted to see the fascinating documents kept by MML on the Russian Revolution and the Spanish Civil War and to see Lenin’s office. The students loved the visit and we have returned many times since to the ideas we learnt at MML.'
(Tom Sawbridge, Ark Academy, Wembley)

'It was genuinely fascinating to see where Lenin worked when he was in London. I can imagine him there, planning the Russian Revolution'
