About the Museum of London

A 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.
