Museum of London

Member Rating 5 out of 5 by Sarah the Expat on March 30, 2004

The Museum of London is the largest city museum in the world, according to its website. It took me two visits to explore it thoroughly, as it goes from prehistoric to the present -- but that's okay because it's free! There is just so much information and so much to look at -- I learned a ton about my new home. It’s probably not all that exciting for small children, but older ones should be interested. They also have interactive learning stations by the Lord Mayor's Carriage on the ground floor.

The museum is well hidden, a bit hard to find. Go to either Barbican or St Paul's tube stops and look for the signs. The museum entrance is actually located in the network of walkways called the Barbican, up above street level. Just walking through those can be an adventure!
