A nice museum where you can follow the history of London through the ages. With some nice reconstitutions. It's a shame that there is no translation in other languages sometimes, and some period are too small for my taste.

Free entry and good for hours of exploration from pre-history through Roman times and more commonly known history up until modern days. Who knew the Roman city was so large and extensive? Lots of artifacts and hands-on exhibits.

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... More

I'd budget at least 2-3 hours. There's quite a bit to see, so it's time well spent.

Yes, there is still a section of the main exhibition that covers the fire, including the Edwardian son et lumiere model. However, the pay-to-view special exhibition that ran last year has since closed.
