The museum's five new, £20m Galleries of Modern London house 7,000 objects and cover a period that starts in 1666 and brings us up to the present. The design blends a range of innovative approaches to traditional ‘objects in cases’ with immersive experiences and new digital elements. You can enter a reconstruction of a cell from an eighteenth-century debtors’ prison, a dark and sombre space where the walls bear the ancient original graffiti, or relax among the trees in an indoor version of the pleasure gardens that Georgian Londoners loved, surrounded by mannequins wearing costumes that were the height of eighteenth-century fashion, and hats by Philip Treacy. Adjacent is the classy museum café by Benugo, and the museum shop whose wares include iconic London items and jewellery by Vivienne Westwood.
