I recently visited the Redbridge Museum at the Redbridge central library. The recent topic was clothes now and then. The displays were all so informative about people of different backgrounds wearing clothes before and how clothing has changed since then. My daughter loved it!

On what Redbridge wore over 300 years. Nicely laid out, not quite finished when we called. One of London's pleasant local museums. Worth a visit

It has old collection (18th and 19th century). Great place to spend few hours with children. I would recommend all.

For those wanting a small grasp of local London East End history, war memorabilia, this will hit the spot. Situated inside the library it is surprisingly quite spacious, plenty of room to walk about with kids in toe. All in all quite insightful and educational.
