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.

Interesting museum about the history of London. I loved to understand the different influences this country has had. I was slightly confused with the prehistoric animals that lived there but overall really informative.

The history of London is interesting from the its first origins as a forested and marshy region to the arrival of the Romans and the Roman wall and the subsequent invasions by the Danes, Vikings and Saxons to the sprawling modern city it has become today. The remains of the various wildlife that inhabited the area is also an eye opener.

This place is somewhere I never thought I would end up. My friend and I had a spare few hours and thought we would go somewhere new. It really is amazingly interesting. Take the time to read each section bit by bit; you build up and interesting timeline in your head. It’s great to see the history of London as it actually is. The history can be tied with stories and anecdotes a lot, so seeing the trust behind it is great! The 2012 Olympic section was a welcome surprise!

A really great London freebie. So good that I would encourage you to make a £5 donation. See London through the centuries in a very accessible and interesting way. Good refreshments and shop are bonuses. Well worth a visit. Do it.
