Museum of London - What's on in March?

What's on in March?
Fire! Fire! is drawing to a close. If you haven't done so yet make a visit to this 'vivid, gutsy' exhibition on the Great Fire of 1666 at the Museum of London.

You can also catch our popular forensic workshop Close to the bone on 3 March and the next talk in the City | Space | Video games series, which will be a discussion on how music affects the way we play video games, on 27 March.
