We've known for a while now that the museum will be relocated to Smithfield. But the designs have just been released - and they're pretty spectacular.
Asif Khan and Stanton Williams have designed a futuristic, flexible space, that is to be topped by a dome rivalling that of the British Museum. Spiral escalors form the backbone of the space - which is only the tip of the iceberg, given the huge underground chamber.
It won't open 'til 2022 - and given the way things are going, who knows what the world will look like by then. But at least we have this to look forward to.
