I visited here early November with my friend to see the suffragette exhibition. Museum was great and Alexandra and the front desk made our time here even more enjoyable. Nothing was too much trouble for her and she was very knowledgable and willing to help....More
This is an extensive museum with a wide collection of artifacts tracing the development of London from prehistory to the present day. There is a strong section on Roman London, and the walk through recreated Victorian shops was also enjoyable - but to be honest...More
This brilliant museum is so packed with fascinating information and unusual artefacts, I couldn't get round all of it in one visit, so went back the following week to finish my tour. There is much of interest to see here, plus some fun, interactive things...More
Good museum, difficult to find entrance. Didn't realise what was to become London was so prominent in prehistoric times. It's an island after all. Good displays of Roman times. I think I missed several displays and will have to return.

From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's
glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.

Obviously if you stopped for lunch, had little kids or it was a busy day there, you could be there all day. Also depends if you were to read all exhibits in detail. It was busy when we visited with several groups of school... More
Obviously if you stopped for lunch, had little kids or it was a busy day there, you could be there all day. Also depends if you were to read all exhibits in detail. It was busy when we visited with several groups of school children crowding exhibits. We managed to see everything, read the information & have an enjoyable visit in about 2hrs. We could have spend more time in some areas, but unless you are interested in seeing everything in detail, this was enough time for us. Enjoy.

Yes, there is still a section of the main exhibition that covers the fire, including the Edwardian son et lumiere model. However, the pay-to-view special exhibition that ran last year has since closed.
