The Museum of London opened it's doors in 1976. It features a chronologically ordered collection of artifacts and exhibits that take you through the entire history of this great city. Items in the museum were amalgamated from several other pre-existing collections.
The museum is layed out so that there is only one route through it's galleries which are viewed in chronological order as you walk through. In the Spring of 2010 the Museum completed a £20 million upgrade which included four new galleries. There are many original artifacts along with pictures, models and interactive hands on displays that are fun for all ages.
The Museum of London is open daily except for December 24th-26th and it has free admission, making it a great place to visit for anyone travelling on a budget.

Wasn't sure what to expect because the building doesn't look like much on the outside. However it was good to go around a museum that just focused on London as often your standard museum can be a little overwhelming. Would thoroughly recommend.

Very informative history of London , well laid out museum. Great cafe with sensible prices and good food. Allow at least three hours for this museum and don't forget to donate

Amazing museum with kind of time travel experience as it contains ancient artifacts dated back to thousands of years. most interesting part was "The Great Fire of London" section. lots of information organized in a great way. best of all, the entry is free. 😛

Great museum little out of the way, recommended for visitor and resident alike it tells the story of London in an engaging journey through time. The room reconstructions are particularly good. Go in the holidays or a weekend, we went on a weekday and there are really are too many school parties.

Good museum with plenty of interesting stuff to see. We spent about 3 hours here but you could easily stay longer. Many many fascinating artifacts and the stories behind them. It is the words and items combined that make this so absorbing. Well worth a visit in my opinion. Easy to get to and a cafe if you want a bite to eat too.
