Packed full of information and interactive exhibits this is a great museum and much quiter than the big museums so you can read at leisure. Its free as well. You need a few hours here. Great for a rainy day.

This museum is still a kind of local jewel. Not too many foreign tourists go there is more for national ones. The parts about the great London fire and the Victorian Street are really amazing, I recommend it.

Really old exhibits! e.g. needs to update London Burning with something more immersive. With all the tech available it should be easy enough to do this. If you only have a weekend in London, this can be missed.

City of London
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
