The history of London, from prehistoric times to the present is told in the Museum of London through reconstructed interiors and street scenes, alongside displays of original artefacts found during the museum's archaeological digs.
Eight large-scale photographs, unveiled on May 1 2015, depict Londoners making the most of city life. They include pictures of World Pillowfight Day in Trafalgar Square, schoolchildren watching the recent solar eclipse from Greenwich and particpants on the Where's Wally Fun Run. A purpose-built pavilion in the museum's gardens is home to an exhibition revealing the design and making process of the Heatherwick Cauldron which housed the Olympic flame at the London 2012 games.
