Guide to Museums in London

London is one of the best cities in the world for museums. Whether you are interested in science, art, history, war, or practically any topic you will find a museum in London to suit your taste.

Many museums in London are free too so if you are looking for a cheap day out in London you will find few better options than incorporating a visit to a museum in your day. Of course the Science Museum and Natural History Museum are really well known but there are many other great museums that are not well known.
