Museum of London
The Museum of London is the largest urban history museum in the world. Its collections span over 2000 years, from pre-history to the present day, bringing alive every aspect of life in one of the world’s most successful cities. The collections include archaeological finds, items related to domestic and working history, costume, decorative arts and paintings, prints and drawings. Objects range from a Roman ‘bikini’ to Cromwell’s death mask and from the doors of Newgate prison to Suffragette memorabilia. The important photographic collection includes images from the earliest days of photography to the present and encompasses work by such distinguished photographers as Roger Fenton, George Reid and Henry Grant. They cover landmarks, evocative street scenes and different types of Londoners as well as events like the Festival of Britain, CND marches and the Notting Hill Carnival.
