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.

I just loved it! And I will come again! It’s a great museum! It’s very interesting and entertaining! I really enjoyed my visit! It’s moving to the market located in the neighborhood, so this is the last chance to see the original version of this nice museum!
A wonderful place! Although this museum is not as well known as the British one or the Natural History M., it has a lot to offer pertaining to London's history. It is not overcrowded and the exhibitions are lovely! I am not keen on history, but I found lots of interesting sections there, esp. The Great Fire in London and Shopkeepers alley. A wonderful souvenir shop on top of that!
