Free Museums


This week, guest contributor, Ben Brondsky has a round up of some of the city’s best museums:

What better way to exercise your brain and have fun than to go to a museum? London has a massive amount of museums to offer and unlike back home most of them are free! There are museums for everyone’s tastes and interests; here are just a few of the free ones:

British Museum

Located at 44 Great Russell St. (Russell Square tube stop) the British Museum has a vast array of different artifacts from throughout the world for all of you history buffs. Want to see some mummies from ancient Egypt? Want to see the Rosetta Stone that isn’t a computer program? Go to the British Museum.

Tate Britain

Located right on the water, the Tate Britain offers a grand view of British art from the 1500s to the present. A bit less modern, and less weird, than its sister museum, the Tate Modern, the Tate Britain offers classics from J.M.W. Turner, William Blake, John Martin, and others. The Turner Prize exhibition begins in October and Tate Britain has a good restaurant as well.

Museum of London

Ever wonder how London became what it is today? Then check out the Museum of London near St. Paul’s Cathedral. The museum showcases how London was pre-Romans up until the present day. You can even see parts of the Roman London Wall outside of the museum.
