Museums in London

The Design Museum, Kensington

Founded by Sir Terence Conran in 1989 and relocated to Kensington in 2016, The Design Museum hosts cutting-edge contemporary exhibitions, from fashion and graphics to architecture and product and industrial design. As well as the fascinating displays of past, present and future design through pop-ups and temporary shows, the museum hosts an array of learning programmes and activities aimed at children (aged 5-11 years) as well as opportunities for young people (aged 14-16 years) such as specialist courses, workshops and talks from leading experts in the industry.

Address: The Design Museum, 224-238 Kensington High Street, London W8 6AG

British Museum, Bloomsbury

The domed glass-and-steel ceiling at the British Museum – the world’s first national museum opened to the public – lets light into the atrium-like Great Court below, bouncing off the blinding-white, sweeping staircases and marble walls. It’s one of the capital’s prettiest spaces, but beyond the impressive lobby, it has sprawling galleries dedicated to the Egyptians, the Greeks and the Romans. Artefacts including the Rosetta Stone, Pantheon Marbles (once a part of the original structure in Athens) and more than 120 mummies draw millions of visitors every year. This is the city’s most-visited attraction and it’s easy to see why.

Address: British Museum, Great Russell Street, London WC1B 3DG

Entry fee: Free entry; exhibitions cost extra

Tate Modern, Bankside

In what was once the Bankside Power Station, Tate Modern looms over the waterfront of the South Bank. Its permanent collections house a wealth of modern British art – see pieces from Damien Hirst and Jackson Pollock – and international artists including Henri Matisse and Auguste Rodin. The immense Turbine Hall is dominated by a changing display of site-specific installations: millions of handcrafted porcelain sunflower seeds filled the space in 2010-11, while Olafur Eliasson took over with The Weather Project in 2003 and a blinding sun installation. Head to the top level of the Blavatnik Building, which was added in 2017, to visit the free viewing platform – the London panoramas are some of the best you’ll find anywhere in the city. However, Tate Modern’s main draw is its changing exhibitions: displays have included works from Picasso, Georgia O’Keeffe and Andy Warhol.

Entry fee: Free entry; exhibitions cost extra

Tate Britain, Pimlico

Tate Modern’s older sister focuses on British art and holds pieces from heavyweights including Lucian Freud, Francis Bacon and William Hogarth within its imposing Pimlico building. The museum hosts regular lates, which fall on the last Friday of the month and have a different theme each time: LGBTQ art, perhaps, or creative learning, with licensed bars in the galleries and a live DJ.

Entry fee: Free entry; exhibitions cost extra

Royal Academy, Piccadilly

Founded by artists and architects in the 1760s, the Royal Academy has been in its current home at Burlington House for more than 150 years and has recently expanded to include the former Museum of Mankind on Burlington Gardens. Highlights of the permanent collection span more than two centuries, from William Turner to Tracey Emin. The annual Summer Exhibition is one of the main events in the London art calendar, held without interruption since 1769, making it the oldest open-submission exhibition in the world. Each year, one of the Royal Academy’s artists curates the display.

Natural History Museum, Kensington

The ornate façade of the Natural History Museum is a love letter to Victorian architecture: a vast gothic building that looks more like a cathedral than a museum. Inside the lofty Hintze Hall (revamped in 2017 to strip it back to its 19th-century splendour), Hope, a ginormous blue-whale skeleton, hangs above the information desk, which doubles up as a bar when the museum throws lates. See dinosaur fossils, the first edition of Charles Darwin’s On the Origin of Species and casts from Pompeii among the museum’s 80 million specimens.

Victoria and Albert Museum, Knightsbridge

London’s largest art museum – the eighth-biggest art museum in the world – has more than 100 galleries displaying everything from photography to jewellery. It has put on some of the city’s most talked-about exhibitions in recent years: the curators have become known for their hot-ticket fashion displays of designers including Christian Dior and Alexander McQueen. Make sure to visit the permanent Rapid Response Collection, which has contemporary pieces that react to significant moments in recent history, such as the pussyhats worn at protests against the election of Donald Trump to a 3D-printed Extinction Rebellion coin.

Imperial War Museum, Lambeth

Housed in what was once the site of Bethlem Royal Hospital (the psychiatric facility better known as Bedlam) and flanked by naval guns, the Imperial War Museum explores the role of British troops in conflicts that cross generations and countries. It’s full of often challenging exhibitions, from displays on World War I to the Holocaust.

Sir John Soane’s Museum, Holborn

Untouched-Georgian-townhouse-meets centuries-old museum, this cabinet of curiosities was once the home of Sir John Soane, an 18th-century architect who designed the Dulwich Picture Gallery, and was a professor at the Royal Academy. See his collection of antiquities, furniture and sculptures, as well as paintings by Hogarth and Turner. Book on one of the Highlights Tours, or see the historical property in a new light and embark on a candlelit tour at Soane late events.

Horniman Museum, Forest Hill

Founded in 1901 by Frederick John Horniman, a tea merchant who wanted a space to display his private collection of natural history, the Horniman Museum is a nature lover’s dream. See African art or visit the tiny aquarium. We especially like the conservatory, set in a grand Victorian glasshouse with views over the rolling gardens.

Visit The Postal Museum and take in the history of letter-writing and communication with interactive displays, galleries and exhibitions. Hop across the road to Mail Rail and travel through the hidden tunnels onboard a miniature train to discover the postal world that lies beneath the busy streets of London. See the unchanged station platforms below Royal Mail’s Mount Pleasant sorting office, hear from the people who worked on the railway and learn about the parts of it that kept the postal system moving through London over the years.

Museum of Brands, Notting Hill

Go on a jaunt down memory lane at this museum, just around the corner from Portobello Road Market in Notting Hill. Take a deeper look at your favourite brands including British stalwarts such as Marmite and Cadbury in the permanent Time Tunnel exhibition created by consumer historian Robert Opie. From changes in packaging, branding and the advertising behind each product, see how these classics have evolved over the past 150 years. The museum is an immersive visual journey from the Victorian era to present day, and shows the impact of social and cultural changes on everything from consumer society, right down to a chocolate bar’s wrapper. Learn how technological and societal transformations in TV and cinema, fashion, games, the prevalence of plastic and the emancipation of women have shaped our commercial world today.

The Old Operating Theatre Museum and Herb Garret, London Bridge

Just a short stroll from London Bridge Station, through the door of the historic St Thomas’ Church, a narrow spiral staircase can be found. Ascend – carefully, mind – and arrive in a space that lay concealed for almost a century before being rediscovered in 1956; the old operating theatre and medicinal storage rooms. While St Thomas’ has taken many forms, it has provided shelter and relief to the sick and needy since the 12th century. Before the age of modern medicine, antibiotics and anaesthetic, surgeries were carried out by doctors with comparatively little knowledge of human anatomy, while bodies were carved open and displayed to eager students on the tiered platforms. Now, the space is a museum for fans of macabre and medicinal history, with details dialled down for children and school groups to attend talks and sessions. The website has lots of information and even games for little ones – there’s lots to learn before your visit should you so wish.

Address: The Old Operating Theatre Museum and Herb Garret, 9a St Thomas Street, London SE1 9RY

Entry fee: adults from £7.50; children from £4.50

Fashion and Textile Museum, Bermondsey

Founded by designer Zandra Rhodes, who displayed 50 years of her fashion line here in 2019, the Fashion and Textile Museum runs a roster of temporary exhibitions rather than having a permanent collection. In between shows, the museum – set in a colourful converted warehouse in Southwark – is closed and completely made over. Past exhibitions have focused on knitwear, Jazz Age fashion, T-shirts and Riviera style – while other shows have put the spotlight on designers including Orla Kiely, Mary Quant and Terence Conran.

Address: Fashion and Textile Museum, 83 Bermondsey Street, Bermondsey, London SE1 3XF

Entry fee: £12.65 for adults, free for children under 12

London Transport Museum, Covent Garden

For anyone who races Citymapper’s proposed route home convinced they can hack public transport, or for those who feel smug when a question on the underground comes up at a pub quiz, head to the London Transport Museum, packed with impressive travel ephemera and facts. See a line-up of red Routemaster buses through the ages, climb aboard one of the very first tube carriages and see stylish retro posters from the past 100 years. Keep an eye on its website for the Acton depot open days, when there’s a rare chance to nose through old Transport for London signs and posters and step aboard vintage tube trains.

Address: London Transport Museum, Covent Garden, London WC2E 7BB

Entry fee: £18.50 for off-peak annual passes, £21 for unlimited adult annual passes

Dulwich Picture Gallery, Dulwich

In the early 1800s, art enthusiast Sir Francis Bourgeois instructed that his entire collection be turned into a gallery open to the public, handpicking architect John Soane to create the Dulwich Picture Gallery from scratch. Look up, and you can see for yourself the innovative techniques Soane used to bathe the whole gallery in sunlight, which became the prototype for all galleries to this day. Still, don’t forget to look down too, to see the great Baroque masterpieces that line the walls and the mausoleum Soane designed for his friend and patron.

Address: Dulwich Picture Gallery, Gallery Road, London SE21 7AD

Entry fee: £16.50

Jewish Museum London, Camden

Following the atrocities of the second world war and the placement of Jewish people across London, two museums came together in the early 1980s – The London Museum of Jewish Life and The Jewish Museum. In what is now known as The Jewish Museum once again, a showcase of Jewish life awaits. Permanent exhibitions include Judaism: A Living Faith, which places ceremonial art and artefacts including historical Torah decorations and Passover plates. Elsewhere, History: A British Story uncovers the stories of Jewish Britons from 1066 to the current day, while The Holocaust Gallery tells the story of Leon Greenman OBE, the anti-fascism campaigner and Auschwitz survivor who passed away in 2008. Regular events include community kitchen sessions and talks and events for friends of the museum, while children often attend in groups to learn about Jewish practices.
