Museum of London

I saw this ad in various tube stations and wanted to check out the exhibit.

Sorry for the blurriness, it’s a blackberry photo.

Jon and I headed to the Museum of London Sunday afternoon for our first visit to this museum. I didn’t even check out the other exhibits on the website because I knew I was only interested in the London Street Photography exhibit.

We walked in to find out that the exhibit had a 1 hour wait and we didn’t have patience to wait around so we walked around the other exhibits which were really cool actually.

Specifically the Expanding City: 1666-1850s, People’s City 1850s-1940s & World City 1940s to Today permanent exhibits.

Lord Mayor’s Coach in 1757.

People’s City: 1850s-1940s

We took a stroll through a Victorian Walk.

A Grocery store:

World City: 1950s–today

This section was the most fun. Interaction maps, artwork, fashion, etc

 

Interaction game and map:

Dr Martens of course:

 

Alternative Londoners

 

That was my little unorganized tour for you and if you liked this then I suggest you visit the museum yourself.  I’m also hoping to make it back for the photography exhibit eventually so you’ll see a post about that soon too.

All in all, it was a perfect rainy day activity.
