Museum of London

For an in-depth and detailed lesson on London since its formation until the present day, the Museum of London will answer every possible question you can imagine. The journey begins in the Lower Thames Valley in 450,000 BC, before moving onto the creation of Londinium by the Romans over 500,000 years later. Visitors journey through the Roman rule, the medieval period, war, plague and fire, before the expansion of the city and evolution of the modern capital we know today.

This fascinating exhibition first opened its doors in 1976 and has remained at its Barbican residency ever since, near to the remains of the Roman city wall and the oldest section of London. The museum holds over 6 million objects and welcomes well over a million visitors every year.
