Really interesting museum. Takes you through the very early years, Romans, Saxons, Normans etc. Bringing you through the plague years, fire of London right up to date. Lots of artifacts and interesting things to see. Also, has a nice cafe.
My other half and I really enjoyed this museum. Follow 'London' right from 450,000 BC up to the present day. I personally found the Roman era the most interesting! We stopped just before the medieval section and headed to the cafe to break the visit...More
We found ourselves in the City with a few hours to fill and decided to visit the Museum of London and we had a great visit. There is a wealth of artefacts all set out in chronological order allowing you to walk through the history...More
The Museum of London is the best place in London that gets overlooked by the tourists. I go there every time I go to London and spend more time there than I meant to. It is an excellent social history of London covering 450,000 year...More
This museum is a 10 / 15 minute walk ( I'm 53 and relatively fit) from Liverpool Street Station. I've popped in now on 3 occasions around 1pm midweek and apart from the odd school trip it's not crowded. I now skip to the different...More
Yet another brilliant museum. The Victoria Walk is especially enthralling with so many authentic features. There are free guided talks and walks at regular intervals and not limited to the displays - many venture into unusual topics e.g. the evolution of the London pub. Again,...More
Spend a few hours discovering the history of the city. As a former Museum Educator I appreciated the plain language text, accessible displays and engaging components. Watched families exploring with kids taking their time and focusing on components. I particularly enjoyed the Suffragette stories. Bravo...More
We managed to get tickets to the Great Fire of London guided walking tour.
Our guide was Kofi and from the moment he greeted us we were charmed. His knowledge was incredible and he had my six-year-old son captivated the entire tour with his tales...More
We actually went to the museum since today it was raining and also snowing a bit. And since our planned tour was cancelled we decided to go to the museum and spend our time day. It was a day spent well. I actually like the...More
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's
glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.

Whilst interesting, I felt that this exhibition was not particularly large - it is just one of many aspects the museum displays. If you look on the museum's web site you can see (and download) a floor plan of the museum and the suffragette page tells you where it is located, so you are able to judge relative size for yourself.

Obviously if you stopped for lunch, had little kids or it was a busy day there, you could be there all day. Also depends if you were to read all exhibits in detail. It was busy when we visited with several groups of school children crowding exhibits. We managed to see everything, read the information & have an enjoyable visit in about 2hrs. We could have spend more time in some areas, but unless you are interested in seeing everything in detail, this was enough time for us. Enjoy.
