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.

  • An amazing walk through the total history of London from prehistoric times to today. It's very complete and the kids will probably get bored and tired, but I thoroughly recommend it. The heating in some places is way too warm, but other than that I thought it was great!
  • Loved this museum and its all free!!! London from its beginnings, all its history laid out for all to see, the good and the bad and the ugly, all beautifully presented. 2 cafes and gift shop await you and please make a donation to preserve this wonderful place.
