Exploring London: The Museum Quarter

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.

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.


Still can’t get enough of London’s free museums?
Then you should definitely check out the British Museum.

    Hope the museums in the Philippines are as properly managed as the museums in London.

    Great post! When I went to London I fell in love with the book stores but this will definitely be a nice avenue to explore next time I’m there.
