It is fantastic that the museums in London are free. British Museum, National Gallery, Natural History, Victoria and Albert are only a few of those that you can visit free of charge. They are wonderful, but don't forget that the museums are huge, so if you want to see everything, you will need some hours in each. Enjoy!


Opening Hours:
Museums usually open at 10:00 and close between 17:30-20:30. It depends on the museum and on the day you visit.
