Museum of London
Compared to most of London's attractions, the Museum of London is a relatively new museum that opened in 1976 by Queen Elizabeth II. It also displays collections from the Guildhall Museum and the London Museum, which closed after World War II. It displays over 2 million artifacts, many which are tools and pottery that were collected throughout the city.
Other displays include Roman, Medieval and Tudor relics from different eras of London. Weaponry and armor make up much of the exhibit, but there are also some modern exhibits in part of the gallery, such as cars, motorcycles and wardrobes. There is even a short film about London that discusses the great fire of London in 1666, how it affected and destroyed many lives and London's recovery.
Opening hours are daily from 10am-6pm. Admission is free.
