#1 of 402 Museums in London
It is every bit as good as the other great museums I have seen- Louvre, Met, Hermitage, Uffizi etc. Wonderful collection of renaissance art as well as excellent impressionist collection.
A great collection of art, worth a visit every time you are in London but if you want to enjoy a great evening, check the cultural activities on every Friday, when several museums and galleries in London are open...

Churchill War Rooms
#2 of 402 Museums in London
ONe of the most fascinating museums I have seen, The rooms are preserved exactly how they were during the war, narration was excellent and the cafe complements the tour.
The Churchill War Rooms are part of the Imperial War Museums and very much worth a visit for anyone who knew of Churchill and/or is interested in the role of Britain in the Second World War.

Wallace Collection
#7 of 402 Museums in London
a little gem between the huge museums, in manchester square, off baywswter road, set back, intimate lighting, great in winter, as well in summer, u are pretty much left alone:)
This has a great collection of paintings and other priceless items on display and being less well known to the other great museums in London is well worth a visit for the smaller number of visitors

The Charterhouse

There is a small, interesting museum and chapel to visit anytime with very approachable, knowledgeable volunteers, but take the time to take a tour to see and hear the entire history.
I was delighted to visit this site after walking passed for years .It must stay as a quiet respected spot ,but the museum and guide were excellent at doing this for us.The guided tour was really interesting with c...
The Courtauld Gallery

It is very small compared to some other museums, there are wonderful masterpieces done by artists of the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries by Van Gogh, Gaugin, Seurat, Degas, Cezanne, Mogdigliani, Manet, Gainsborough...
If you enjoy impressionist art them this is a must go can see the beautiful paintings without the huge crowds at the bigger museums

... the beauty of this building but if you do go it is worth enjoying the entire experience, the staff are exceptionally welcoming, it is free to enjoy but we found the museum well worth the small entrance fee
There is also a small museum which gives some insight in the Hindu faith.

This is a small but amazing little "pop up" museum open till Feb 2017 and packed with graphics and artwork from the Harry Potter films as well as a floor dedicated to the new Fantastic Beasts film.
Super nice little shop/museum/gallery/exhibition with graphic art from the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts movies.

There is a treasure trove of artworks on loan from various Sussex museums including Bloomsbury group works by Duncan Grant, once the love of J.M.Keynes life, and Vanessa Bell with her arresting self portrait.

The Museum of the Order of St John

There are many museums in London and this one deserves more attention from tourists as it is a lovely and serene oasis of history.

Museum of London Docklands
#16 of 402 Museums in London
The museum itself is in a wonderful old warehouse in West India Quay that's been lovingly restored/transformed into one of the best museums of its kind we've ever seen.
I have visited London over the past several years for holiday and each time I visit Museums and Art Galleries, I wish I had visited this museum sooner.

Tate Britain
#17 of 402 Museums in London
Quieter than touristy museums but worth it for panini tings and the special exhibitions...definitely a must do and super close to Houses of Parliament with a river view walk along the river.
With so many incredible art museums in London it can be hard to choose, but if you want to experience British art, I would enthusiastically recommend the Tate Britain.

We really enjoyed our visit, it is very different to the usual museums.
Visitors will be able to see the magnificent Great Hall, the beautiful Wren Chapel and the museum.
National Portrait Gallery
#20 of 402 Museums in London
Picaso's exhibition presenting some 60 portraits he created along his rich and long career,provides the viewer with a unique opportunity to see many works which are in private collections and far away museums.
I still think it's fantastic that there are so many free museums and galleries in this country, though of course you'll want to make a donation if you are able.

Imperial War Museum
#21 of 402 Museums in London
This has got to be one of the best War Museums, well worth a visit, free entry, lots of war history, WW1 WW2 the cold war etc, over a few floors but so interesting and so much to see and read about !!
... visited when it comes to the nr of exhibits, but it is a beautiful museum, loved the displays and they have some really nice WWI and WWII pieces so it's well worth the visit, one of the nicest museums for sure.

We stumbled upon this museum completely by accident and it is one of the quirkiest and best museums I've had the privileged of visiting.

Everyone who visits London goes to the big museums such as the Natural History and Science, but it's well worth a trip to Notting Hill to see this excellent place.

Wesley's Chapel & Museum of Methodism
#29 of 402 Museums in London
The life and times of John and Charles Wesley is beautifully told and exhibited in both the chapel, museum and in John Wesley's house, which has been restored to its original state, with many original artifacts.
As active Methodists we certainly appreciated this Wesley Chapel/Museum visit, but I think anyone interested in religious history would also find it fascinating.
