Documenting the history of a city as iconic and important as London is no easy task, but Museum of London does so with care and attention to detail. Founded in 1976, the museum covers a period of time spanning all the way back to the prehistoric era and up to the present day. Overlooking the city’s ancient Roman wall, the museum contains a series of galleries replete with artifacts, models, pictures, and diagrams. Exhibit space here contains about one million objects. See what the city was like under the Romans and Saxons, learn about the impact of various civil wars on the city, and wander recreated Victorian streets and pleasure gardens. If you're traveling with children and would like to make their visit more engaging, download activity sheets from the museum's website beforehand. Plan trip to London with our itinerary maker to find out where to go and what to do.

  • Brilliant museum! In 2 hours we only did 2 galleries so we're going back again on Friday. I would highly recommend this museum to all ages. Finds are exhibited in context making it so much more interesting than seeing them in glass cases.
  • Staff at the front desk very polite and informative. Had a lively slow stroll around. I have been here before. Definitely worth a visit. And Its free
