I love this free museum but the current London Nights exhibition is an absolute must-see. Well worth a visit and in the current humid weather, a very pleasantly cool interior.

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.
