The Museum of London has added to its modern collection after it commissioned works by fifteen London-based contemporary artists and makers, and they’ve gone on display in a new exhibition.
About the Museum of LondonA huge museum in the City devoted to the history, mostly of the centre of London, from Roman times right up to the modern day.
A number of permanent galleries are laid out in chronological order, with a mixture of original objects and recreations.
Particular highlights include the recreation of a Victorian street, the 2012 Olympic cauldron, and the Lord Mayor's carriage.
A number of displays change several times a year, with smaller free exhibitions, and usually one major paid-for exhibition.
IMPORTANT - Although venues are reopening, their hours may differ from normal, and most now need prebooking before you visit.
