Being the Capital City of England, London is blessed with many eye-captivating museums. These museums range from those that can be classified as large ones to small ones.
Some provide an amazing glimpse of history world, while some museum dedicated for art lovers. If you are planning to visit London, Compilation 11 recommends the following ten of the best Museums that you should consider to visit once in your life.
10) British Museum
Britain has existed since the times of the Roman Empire. This museum covers if not all, most of this history. It is odd that Britain has pinched the Elgin Marbles. However, everything in this museum has been nicked too. So, drop your sentiments on imperialism and enjoy the dubious collection of riches that make up this place.
9) Science Museum
Isn’t if funny that many people mock scientists to be geeks yet the same people fancy visiting the Science Museum?
If you want to appreciate magical innovations that are fascinating and odd at the same time, this is the place to visit. We recommend this museum for you and your children as well.
8) Wellcome Collection
This place is heavenly splendid. If you visit it once, you will certainly choke to the gunwales with anomalous medical based artifacts.
It is a home of undeviating innovations and unabatingly exciting exhibitions. In recent years, the museum has managed to cover slumber, aesthetics and death.
7) Natural History Museum
Dinosaurs: What else could you want to hear? Back then when I was a kid, I purchased an orange triceratops pencil-sharpener from this place. Amazingly, I still have it. This suggests how amazing this place is.
Moreover, if you do not like dinosaurs, you will surely learn more about other interesting and peculiar facts about animals.
6) London Zoo
Well, dinosaurs are no longer on the earth’s surface. Probably, you want to learn about currently existing animals. If so, then the London Zoo is the place to be.
These are animals you will never encounter on the road while going to get groceries. London Zoo is pricy but worth it. If your pocket is not friendly enough, don’t worry! You can still peer at the gracious giraffes from the road, outside.
5) Design Museum
We all love to buy stuff. We feel much better to buy beautifully designed stuff. If you however cannot afford them, the best place to drool over such is the Design Museum. Here, you find stylish chairs, lustrous Hoovers and a variety of astute and modish bits and bobs. The museum houses both the essentials and the pointless things.
4) National Maritime Museum
Fans of the Great British Empire know that it was based on trade. Being an Island, the access was through the sea. Therefore, boats and sea-based transport tools were an important part of this generation. The best place to learn about all these is the National Maritime Museum.
3) Imperial War Museum
Here, you will find more about Empires and war. It houses a collection of big tanks, war planes and guns. It is the best representation of the horrors of war rather than the humanity that was lost during the war period.
2) Museum of London
After learning about the history of Britain, it sounds right to narrow down to the history of London, the capital of England.
This museum is a platform of the breathtaking and mind-boggling history of the Old Londinium (as referred to by the Romans). The museum also has fabulous temporary exhibitions. If you want to learn more about London, you should surely visit this museum.
1) Victoria and Albert Museum
This Museum is considered one of the greatest in the world and this why it comes at the top of our list. It is a collection of exquisite art and relics that exist as a result of human advancement. Just to mention a few, the museum has books, art, ceramics, and furniture, fashion etc. All housed in the same place to provide true value for you money.
This museum is an example of good construction that was held at the mid of the 19th century. No doubt, this is a splendid destination for travelers.
Recently, the museum has introduced live bands/music performances and resplendent exhibitions. Really, there is no bad word to describe this place. Viva le V&A!
