grr! went to wrong museum!

Posting from hotel lobby here... SO and I were planning on going to the British museum tonight as it is open until 8:30 Th/Fri nights. What HE heard was "museum of London" so we trekked all around Barbicon and ended up at a closed museum! And I'm just realizing now what our mistake was, after eating dinner and getting ready to turn in. Oh well, having a decent enough time otherwise, hope the rain holds off tomorrow!

You can't be the first to have done this - though probably the first to admit it!- Hope you enjoy the rest of the trip, in one of the soggiest early summers I can remember.

gweneddk: Oh, what a bummer. But at least you got some exercise in -- probably more than you wanted, but still.

My daughter was in London a few weeks past, she did make it to the British museum. When she returned in a few days she made her way back again forgetting she had already done it. Our minds do get things cofused so easily even if we are young.All things to look forward to next time. toffee

gwen, don't know if you can still make it to the British Museum. But there's currently a thread running on the first page of the London Forum threads on the British Museum which will give you a strong appetite for the wonders it has to offer. If you were planning on either Tussauds or the London Dungeon, you might be happy to forsake them in favour of the true treasures on offer at the British Museum.

Sorry that happened, but you missed some great sights right there by the Museum of London! On one side there is the Roman wall fragment, adorable "Worshipful Company of Barbers" herb garden and duck pond. You also probably walked right past Postman's Park, with its monuments to ordinary people who lost their lives saving others. Not to mention "Little Britain" street, which I got a kick out of! I went on one of the London Walks this summer, and "discovered" those places. Too bad the Museum of London was closed, because it is worth a visit too. Hope you make it to the British Museum tomorrow!
