One of the many wonderful things I love about London are the museums. There are over 240 museums in London catering to different people and interests — from Sherlock Holmes Museum to the British Museum. And unlike Paris and other cities, most of the government-funded and major museums in London are free admission! A lot of things in London are either free or cheaper through certain passes, but I’ll discuss that on another post. For now, let me share some of the photos (yes, it’s okay to take photos inside the museums!) I took when I went to visit the three museums in the South Kensington Area, also known as the Museum Quarter.
Natural History Museum
Victoria & Albert (V&A)

Although a bit overwhelming, I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to all three museums in South Kensington. All three are located next to each other, but I don’t recommend visiting all in one day.
