Have you had a chance to explore the wonderful London museums yet? The entrance to most of our museums is free, apart from particular exhibitions that you may need to pay for. However, the free part of the museum gives you plenty to explore.
Perhaps it’s something you’d like to do this weekend? If so, I hope the following list of museum recommendations helps you in your explorations:
- V&A Museum (Knightsbridge) – The Victoria and Albert Museum is the world’s largest museum of decorative arts and design, housing a permanent collection of over 4.5 million objects.
