The entire history of London -- its inhabitants, buildings, fortunes (and misfortunes), politics, dramas and dramatics, from earliest times to the present day -- is beautifully displayed and related in this enchanting museum. Once visited, never forgotten, this museum is an absolute must.

Not easy to find a free opportunity in London. A well done museum on the history of the city with nice exhibits. Spend 1-1/2 to 2 hours and understand much about the city.

I'd budget at least 2-3 hours. There's quite a bit to see, so it's time well spent.

Yes, there is still a section of the main exhibition that covers the fire, including the Edwardian son et lumiere model. However, the pay-to-view special exhibition that ran last year has since closed.
