    Nice list! Pinning it so I can remember. I didn’t know all of those big museums were free!

      I know – the UK is really great about offering free entrance to their national museums.

    Hi Adam,

    You don’t know me, but I am your Gramma’s roommate at Masonic Home. Your Aunt Anne had me look up your website and after I found it, she said to send you an email to say “Hi”.

    Congrats on your London blog being picked up by nat’l geographic.

    Your Aunt and Gram say “hello” too.

    Love London’s free museums – on my several trips I’ve only scratched the surface, but I think they’ve got it about right. Charge for the super-special exhibits, the rest is free (donation suggested).

    To me, it creates a feedback loop, especially for the locals. People form a relationship with a museum they like. They’re more likely to donate to it when they are able and to pay for special exhibits if they already feel connected to that institution. It makes the main exhibits almost an entry-level drug. ;-)

    This is one of the reasons I love London too! :-) I don’t know how many times I’ve just nipped in to one for a couple of hours since living here.

      Hey Kirsty! I’m so jealous of how easy and accessible art is in this city.

      PS – So glad to have seen you this weekend! xoxo

    The free museums is one of the things that I think makes London such a great city to visit (though I still maintain it can be a pretty awful place to live sometimes), and it’s one of the few things I’m rather proud of my hometown for. It’s not just London, though, by the way. There are free museums all over the UK!

      There are other cities in the UK besides London?!? (Kidding…sort of!)

      Haha, yes. I think London is a great destination for visiting and it’s set up pretty well for tourists. Plenty of sightseeing and attractions, free museums, easy transportation — it’s no wonder the city gets so many tourists every day!

    We will definitely love the places too. The best places are the places you can visit for FREE. No entrance fee. Will definitely drop by when we are in the area!

    Free museums are absolutely the best. I hate going to a museum and feeling like you have to see EVERYTHING to get your money’s worth. When they are free that feeling disappears, and you are able to explore so much more freely. It’s great to be in London walking around and just pop into the natural History Museum or the V&A for an hour and then be on your way. You can absorb and then reflect over a good meal – the way museums were meant to be! Safe travels!

      Well said Travis! There’s a lot of pressure to see and do so much more once you pay. Having the time to take in and see what you want makes the museums so much more enjoyable for everyone.

    When in London, check out the Hunterian – unique and always free.

      Yep I’ve heard about that one! Plan to check it out on my next visit, thanks for the tip Maria

    I love the V&A museum, I could spend hours there alone just wondering the beautiful building

      Completely agree Rebecca! The V&A building is beautiful and its collection is so vast and special – love it!
