Visit the Museum of London to learn all you’ve ever wanted to know about this glorious city. Surrounded by Roman remains which enhance the museum’s historical atmosphere, you’ll feel as if you’ve travelled back in time as you learn about its vibrant history, from prehistoric times to the present day.
Fun fact: It’s the largest urban history collection in the world!
The city’s history is demonstrated through a range of objects; survey the armour of medieval soldiers, or check out the vast costume collection demonstrating fashion over the years. You can see first-hand the East End poverty of the early 1900s or the blitz-damaged City of London in the photograph collection.
The Museum has also started an oral collection of people’s life stories, with over 5000 hours of recorded audio recounting people’s experiences. It’s full of fascinating facts, images and objects to make it the perfect day out. You can even wander in and out of the shops on a recreated Victorian street.
