🗣️ Museum of London: Des avis

4.9/5 (37 Des avis)

Expérience fantastique: We went with the intention of seeing the Harry Kane exhibit and stayed for a few hours enjoying the various exhibits. It was so interesting to see the history of London and it's people. It's free to enter but well worthy of a donation.

Expérience fantastique: We thought we would try and get to the Museum of London before it closes for its coming move to Smithfields. Also one of the kids had been learning about the fire of London, so this was a good opportunity to feed more knowledge to the young minds in the family! We was greeted well upon arrival and given a quick note of where everything is, and the kids were given some trail sheets to follow. We had a quick look at the Harry Kane exhibition before going through the ages if London. Personal preference in the fact that we skimmed though prehistoric fairly quickly, but we spent a fair amount of time at the other areas. We were completely knackered by the end of our visit - there for about 3 hours! The only downside to our visit (and not really the museum itself) was the cafe, went in for some drinks and food. Tables were not clean had to argue to get a cup to go with canned drink (was sharing with kids).

Expérience fantastique: This is one of the best museum of London. Here entry is free. But just to register online. Very big and very nice museum. In this place, where you can see all ancient things when London was not devlopted, which is with limited land and after that how they expanded in such form. They display very well. Must visit place Kids might like but explain them by read all the details written over their.

Expérience fantastique: Great place to take the kids and free too! Really informative about the amazing history of London, Londinium, Lundenwic, Lundenburh or whatever it want's to call itself If you DO want to touch the walls of old Londinium as I did. You will actually find those outside the museum. Go outside, turn left and keep going left till you see a set of stairs that go all the way to ground level. Go down them and walk up the road a bit. Then directly opposite the carpark entrance you will is your first bit of wall. Go down the stairs and into the garden as well because there is a lot more wall in the area!

Expérience fantastique: If you want to know about the history of the city of London. Put this museum on your bucket list, but be quick, because it will be closing its doors soon, as it's being relocated to West Smithfield. The main reason I came to visit The London Museum, was to see the see the London 2012 Olympic torch and trust me it was worth a visit. Even though it's been 10 years since London hosted the games. The legacy still lives on.

Expérience fantastique: Lovely greeting from two friendly staff. What a difference a kind face makes. Really enjoyed the layout of the museum and plenty of seating as you walk around to enjoy the displays at your leisure.

Expérience fantastique: Great place to visit. So many exhibits on display. Allow atleast 4 hours for a good look around. Family quizzes are available at the entrance to take part in on the way round. Toilet facilities are clean and tidy. Nice shop and cafe Only at this location for another few months but the new location will be fantastic

Expérience fantastique: An impressive work to tell the history of London very visually while showcasing the historical findings including many mud-larked from the Thames. Some parts were more attractive than others, especially for children, because of the interactive aspect. My 8 year old liked the Roman life exhibits (especially the food) and the Victorian feel shops and places in particular. It would have been really great to have something more interactive for the Anglo Saxon and the medieval time as well.

Expérience fantastique: Came here on Saturday to view the Grime Exhibition and wasn’t disappointed! Lovely little museum and cool areas to view. The souvenir shop had a tiny section of Grime related gifts you could buy and my partner managed to buy a top he’d never seen a design for before so result! Also nice that it’s a very short walk to the Barbican Centre.

Expérience fantastique: Very nice museum. An extraordinary journey This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to reconceive what a museum for London can be.

London Double Trouble 1 year ago

Expérience fantastique: First time here, and an excellent way to spend a couple of hours on a Sunday afternoon. 2 pm was perfect as it gives you enough time to look around before it closes, and it wasn't that busy either. Make sure to visit by December 2022 as they are moving to a new location. It looks incredible what they are going to do. There are a couple of pictures with the details, but if you are interested, make sure you look online and see what the plans are when they open in 2025! It's a short distance walk from St Paul's, Barbican and Farringdon The history right across the board is fascinating. It makes you think how in-depth London is, from the Roman days, the critical part of the Thames had been to the black death, to the London fire, Victorian times, multicultural, Kings and Queens it's full of history if you want to learn more about this great city. It's free to enter, but it's up to you if you want to donate your choice, which I felt was important This is one of many great museums in the city! Solid A***** LDT x

Expérience fantastique: We loved this museum. Very informative and filled with fabulous artifacts and scenes of times gone by. Highly recommended for anyone interested in how London developed from a small settlement to the capital city we know today. The staff were very good, greeting us and providing information and direction. And its FREE! Well done to the curators and staff for providing such a brilliant place to visit.

Expérience fantastique: London has some of the best museums in the world and so many of then are free to boot. This museum is well set up to tell the story of of London from prehistoric times all the way into the modern Era. Each section highlights major events, technologies, and traditions to illustrate the corresponding time period. The medieval section and the women's suffrage exhibits particularly captured my attention.

Expérience fantastique: The museum of London is a great place to learn a lot about the history of London. It was not too obvious about how to enter the museum. I saw people walking across a bridge connected to an escalator, so I found the escalator and went up then find the bridge, which led to the entrance of the museum. It’s free to enter, though donation was recommended. I saw a lot of interesting things. The gift shop was nice too. I found a lot of affordable little things as gifts, but I did not buy anything because I tried to be minimal.

Expérience fantastique: I really liked this museum!! I'm very interested in the working class in Victorian London and this is the only museum I could find which had an exhibit about it. I do wish that section had been a bit bigger but that's just me. There are replicas of Victorian streets and the pleasure gardens, which was so cool! Also a Victorian doll house!! I think this would be a great place to take your kids- I was a bit odd as a kid and absolutely obsessed with Victorian everything, but I know for a fact that I would have LOVED it. There were a lot of child-friendly question prompts. There was also a really interesting small exhibit about Twitter which I thought was cool. Also the museum does go through the entire history of London going back to prehistoric times. It's not at all just about the Victorians hahaha that's a pretty small portion. Just what I was interested in and found most notable!

Expérience fantastique: Great museum about the history of London from ancestry til now. Free entrance, donations are suggested. Wide variety of sections. It is distributed depending on the ages. Still has a section of the original Roman arches. Ideal to go with kids and anybody else. Very nice staff. 5 stars

Expérience fantastique: This free museum was so much fun. Great place to learn who was here before the Londaniers. Lots of walking

Lewis 1 year ago

Expérience fantastique: Please visit this place. It is free to enter, however, you are encouraged to leave a donation, and jam packed with history, right the way from BC, all the way to the modern day. It's incredible to learn how London changed from a tiny settlement on a huge bed of water, to the thriving multinational city that it is today, and it brings to life the value of innovation.

Maegan 1 year ago

Expérience fantastique: Great free museum that speaks to the history of London. Very cool artifacts. Be sure to check out the remains of the London Wall around the museum! Good interactive exhibits for kids too

Rob Quickenden 1 year ago

Expérience fantastique: Took my 7 year old here as he wanted to see the great fire of London museum as he'd be learning about it at school. It's a fab place, easy to find and get too, loads to do. And see and he found most of it really interesting walking through the history of London through the ages and even before "London was London". Definately recommend.

Simon Bartlett 1 year ago

Expérience fantastique: This was a fantastic place. Mainly bones and stone age stuff on main floor which Is quite interesting but not very geographic if you wanted to know what a particular place in London was like in the ice age. Downstairs is fantastic. A real treasure trove of recent London history. Plus exhibition of Grime including Jammer from Waltham Forest. Plus Harry Kane exhibition. I'm not a Spurs fan but my missus loved it. It's all free but give these guys a donation while your there.

Mick Pelling 1 year ago

Expérience fantastique: As with all museums, there is simply too much to take in. This museum is dedicated to the London area, with so many artifacts including from a time when London didn't exist. Roman London is covered extensively, plus the Great Fire, black death, the plague etc. The mock up of Victorian streets is very good as well. I really went to see the Harry Kane exhibition on this occasion, inspiring, I thought. The museum is moving to Smithfields in a few months, in should be even grander

Expérience fantastique: History revisited. To get to know history of London a must spot. Very informative sections. Good work by the organization and the staffs

The Tewkes 1 year ago

Expérience positive: There is no clear flow to some parts of the museum & I think like it would be really easy to miss bits. The staff were friendly & they had some good pieces in there. They could do with making it a bit interactive for kids. Took a couple of hours to walk though it all.

Chris Hofmann 1 year ago

Expérience fantastique: Recommended to me by a friend as a bit of a different museum. At first I thought the top portion was a bit dry - I mean, how many pre-historic axe/arrow-heads can you see to get the point? However, the deeper I got into the museum (Starting with the Roman era), I got what the museum was trying to do in immersing you to tell the story of London through the ages. By the time I got down to the modern times on the bottom, I became a big fan of the museum and its layout/presentation. I’m very glad I got to see this - it’s relocating at the end of the year to a new location and may be shut-down for a lengthy period of time. Wish I had another 30-45 minutes to take it in - you’ll want to put this on your list at about 2.5 hrs. Also it’s a short walk away from St. Paul’s so it’s a good way to round out the morning or afternoon. I was very impressed with the Victorian walk presentation

Expérience fantastique: Excellent museum. The entrance is FREE and worth a visit. Well displayed exhibitions. A lot of interactive things. Many coins from the Roman period are on display there. Тhe Roman walls outside the museum which is part of the complex.

Expérience fantastique: Wonderful museum for everyone of all ages, lots to see here. This is another one of the top “FREE” museums in London. Open: Wednesday–Sunday (10am–5pm) The Museum of London tells the history of London from prehistoric times to the modern day. Not your average local history museum – the story is told in an entertaining way with models, films and multimedia displays. Their gift shop is one of the best places for London-related books and souvenirs. Highlights: The Lord Mayor’s coach, Pearly Kings and Queen costumes, Fanshawe dress, Selfridges Art Deco lift.

Kabeer Imran 1 year ago

Expérience fantastique: The museum of London is very much interesting I’ve spent nearly 3-4 hours in museum looking for each n every single thing. Very much informative things here about London. Take your kids here and they will know a lot of things. Friendly and helpful staff Quick scanning at entrance if you already book your tickets online. Must visit

Melissa Herman 1 year ago

Expérience fantastique: This is a stunning museum! I’m planning to come back a second time to experience it again. Being from South Africa, it was so lovely to see references to my country (Nelson Mandela) and my city Cape Town, in the museum. The first commercial flight from London was to Cape Town! The exhibition starts right in the beginning, I mean prehistoric beginning! And then goes all the way through the ages including the time of Roman rule. There was no wait to enter and the museum was not full at all which made for a pleasant experience even though we visited on a public holiday. There’s a café inside where you can purchase food and drink. Free tickets must be pre-booked online for a particular time slot. There are lockers to keep items such as a jacket and backpack but you need £1 coins to use it. I would have loved to see more of ‘modern’ London in this museum but I guess that would need a whole museum on its own! This is a must-see when coming to London and 1 hour is sufficient to see everything.

Expérience fantastique: One of the best museums that I have had the pleasure to visit. Covers a large breadth of history. I particularly enjoyed learning about the Great Fire of London.

Stephen Woodman 1 year ago

Expérience fantastique: What an amazing place. Everything you could want to learn about London from 450000 BC to the modern day (so one visit may not be enough). The staff that welcome you are some of the friendliest and most enthusiastic I've met at a museum. The Medieval London and London Black History were particularly fascinating to me and I will have to go back soon for the Great Fire of London exhibit. Make sure you put time aside in your schedule for a visit to the Museum of London before the end of 2022.

Feed the Lion 1 year ago

Expérience fantastique: Don't let the outside fool you. This museum is one of the best around. If your from London or the UK then the relevance of this place is worth the visit. Great for kids education which includes 'The Black Death' and 'The Great Fire of London'. Don't forget to visit the Roman walls outside the museum which is part of the complex. Estimated time spent 2.5 hours. Free tickets to be bought online in advance. Train station is next door. Food wise there is an in-house cafe and many food options 5 min walk away. Parking is free on a Sunday a few minutes walk away but is inside the congestion zone.

Expérience fantastique: First time visit and very impressed. We a home ed family (7,10,13) found it packed full of great exhibits and information. The models in the Roman section are fantastic, with loads of detail to bring the display alive. The large collection of Roman items was very impressive. Staff very friendly. We visited on a week day in Feb, so it was quite with the odd school party joining us. The Victorian area was lovely to see, shops and stores all done in Victorian style but not a lot of information in this section. Will we return, YES.

Arno Fry 2 years ago

Expérience fantastique: Visited on my first day traveling from London. Didn't have any currency yet but the friendly staff helped me out to store away all my luggage to enjoy the stay hassle free. (Usually the lockers are 1£). The museum itself guides you through the entire history of the town from pre-historic to the modern city we see today. Liked their eye for detail, like the little mouse that is hiding in between exhibits, highlighting the fashion of the time. After leaving the museum I had a new view on the city and could reference some of the facts I learned there to my stay as a tourist visiting the city.

TUI 125 2 years ago

Expérience fantastique: A very very good museum if you want to find out everything from over millions of years ago up to today about London. You can see so much and do so much which Is completely free. Some of the older things were a little bit Boring but the majority is very intresting. I would %100 recommend visiting.
