Tips

  • The worlds largest museum of urban history documents the citys development from Roman settlement to cosmopolitan metropolis. Attractions include the Lord Mayors State Coach.
  • The history of London told through reconstructed interiors and street scenes, alongside displays of original artefacts found during the museum's archaeological digs.
  • Head to the museum shops for some cool and quirky present ideas, such as a Solar Panel Queen. The solar panels power the Queen's hand to wave, 15.
  • If you have an NFC enabled phone, make the most of your visit by tapping the Nokia tags around the museum. Unlock vouchers, learn more about London's rich history, check in on foursquare and more!
  • New museum (modern london) superb. Great. Made me speechless.. OMG
  • Upstairs, the chronological displays begin with 'London Before London', where artefacts include flint axes from 300,000 BC, found near Piccadilly, and the bones of an aurochs.
  • Don't miss the dead cat under the glass floor in the modern galleries.
  • Fabulous museum located in a corner of the Barbican complex. Excellent historical information on London. Then go outside and see parts of the old Roman wall!
  • Great museum including Roman and British history. Especially, the parts including old styles of Londoners and the Victorian walk are amazing.
  • Modern part of the exhibition is truly awesome (for those who are not into a lot of archeology), and a Victorian walk is a miraculous time machine. Skip the ancient part and try some visible history
  • Free entry into the Museum of London!
  • Love this museum and the exhibitions. The cafe staff could be more helpful to mums juggling babies, buggies and lunch though!
  • Our favourite exhibit? The copperplate maps - first proper map of London and oozing with detail.
  • This museum is really quite well done. The exhibits tell you stories from ancient to modern London, with some fun interactive bits. You can spend a full afternoon here. I learned things!
  • New gallery shows the 2012 Olympic Cauldron. A very good free museum.
  • Great exhibtion! Loved the Cheapside Hoard exhibition.
  • Don't go in Easter it's full of children whos parents seem to think it's a playground
  • London's 'hidden gem' museum. Go before everyone discovers it.
  • It's free - great value for money. Please make a donation though
  • Often overlooked, this is a great stop for British history buffs. Be sure to visit the Roman wall. Edward Rutherfurd's historical novel London ends here.
