Finally, a single website dedicated to over 200 museums in London. We’ve walked the streets of London from Old Kent Road to Richmond Park documenting every single museum along the way.
Inspirational, entertaining and educational, London’s museums include international heritage icons like the British Museum, the National History Museum and the Science Museum. As well as lesser-known quirky specialist museums such as the Fan Museum, Museum of Brands, Packaging and Advertising, and The Hunterian Museum at The Royal College of Surgeons (not for the faint of stommach!).
It’s widely known that London is the place to see the Crown Jewels, marvel at the Magna Carta and ponder over the Rosetta Stone, but did you know it’s also where you can find Winston Churchill’s dentures, Napoleon’s toothbrush and the world’s oldest dress? Not to mention the Marquess of Anglesey’s leg, and the mortal remains of Florence Nightingale’s pet tortoise?
We've made it easy to find new and interesting museums in central London and the London boroughs, filter by interest category, and if you're on a budget we've collected the free museums too.
Whether you’re a long-time resident or first time visitor to England’s capital, London’s museums are a fantastic way of exploring the city and this handy digital guide provides all the information you’ll need to unlock the cabinet of curiosities.
