Must-See Museums in London

Must-See Museums in London

London’s range of free-to-enter museums cements its status as a world-leading cultural capital. Whether you’re modern art mad or desperate to see dinosaurs, London has something for you. Here are a few London museums you can’t miss. 

British Museum

The British Museum is home to more than 8,000,000 artifacts, mostly collected under the British Empire. Among the treasures, you can find the Rosetta Stone, Parthenon Marbles, and the mummified remains of ancient Egyptians.

**How to Visit:**Book a private tour for a personalized journey into ancient history or jump off a hop-on hop-off bus tour in Bloomsbury to explore at your own pace.

V&A

The Victoria and Albert Museum, or V&A, is the largest decorative arts and design museum in the world. Its collection spans five millennia and four continents, and is made up of around 6.5 million individual items.

**How to Visit:**The V&A is on the same road as the Science Museum and Natural History Museum. Get a general overview of all three in just one day, or get deeper insight on a V&A tour led by an art historian.
