About Museum of London

The Museum of London traces the history of London from prehistoric times to its modern incarnation. As part of the Barbican complex, it sits on the edge of one of the oldest sections in the city and just a short walk from St Paul's Cathedral. An amalgamation of two previous museums, the Guildhall Museum and the London Museum, it is home to a wide range of exhibits that include paintings, photographs, archaeological finds, models, clothes and costumes.


The Museum's focus is large and its scope beyond that of most other Museums, making it a fascinating glimpse into the history of a city that has grown into one of the largest and most influential in the world.

This is a fantastic museum and I was so shocked that it was all for free. It's ok for wheelchair users too as lifts take you everywhere you want.


Thanks for the guide
