This is one of our favorite London museums, although we haven't been there in quite some time now.  We plan on returning in June (2014) when we will have a few days in London.  We especially enjoy the exhibits dealing with Roman times and the Great Fire.


A long time since I was last at the MofL and have to say I was pleasantly surprised.  The flow round the history of London is quite amazing - though to be honest the Pre-Roman time did go on a bit too long to my mind. Various highlights for me were the Georgian period with the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens and the Victorian Street which I could have spent in - especially if we had been able to go into the shops more.


I went on a Saturday and there were plenty of children around, which is always a chore, but there was a lot to catch their eye, though not that much was interactive.  Movement round the museum was easy and there were places to drop out of the chronological story had I wanted to.  All in all a really great place with stories to tell about the city that surprised even this grizzled old veteran.

A great place to go in the half term holidays with or without the kids! Not been here since I was one & forgot just how spectacular the museum is! Kids & I loved it! It's a must see!:)

Despite living in London for most of my life I am ashamed to say this was my first visit to the Museum of London. What an absolutely amazing place! Despite its somewhat daunting exterior (it looks like it could be a prison!) the second I walked through the gate into the garden I was nothing but pleasantly surprised. The museum is well laid out, easy to navigate and much larger than I expected. It just seems to go on forever and takes you through an array of all things London in a year by year journey. I will most certainly be back. Absolutely fascinating and a fantastic way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

I have been to the Museum of London on numerous occasions with friends and other members of my family and am continously struck by how skillfully it combines archaic london with contempory themes.The archeology of our great country is incredibly diverse and prehistoric.when you come face to face with evidence of the ancestral presence of the country combining their creative resorcefulness and strategies they used to not just survive but thrive carving a beautiful world. In an often hostile enviroment is a humblng experience.Modern topical issues are covered with numerous displays sometimes remindng us that our ethnically diverse city can be a source of strength enriching all our lives if we take an honest look ot ourselves and challenge our preconceptions about each other.

I took my son here a few years ago and we both loved it. Being born in London myself but now living in the West Country, it gave me a chance to show him where I grew up and it's history. He loved the dressing but the highlight of our day was the Roman Gladiator show where you were actually involved as a Roman crowd. If they do it again and you get the chance to go, I highly recommend it.
