Museum of London - Stuck for what to do between Christmas and new year?

Don't miss The City is Ours
Put down the TV remote, take a break from the leftovers and shake off the festive fatigue – not with another nap on the sofa – but with some free, post-Christmas culture.

The Museum of London and Museum of London Docklands reopen today (10am – 6pm) after a short Christmas break, just in time for you to catch our current exhibitions and displays before they close next month.

At the Museum of London we’re entering the final week of The City Ours which closes on 2 January. With digital and physical interactives and films, this free exhibition explores how innovations from around the world tackle the challenges cities face today and the experience of urban living in the 21st century. ‘A fascinating insight into the minutiae of urban life, showing why it should matter to us all.’ City A.M.

Over at the Museum of London Docklands, West Indians: Forefathers of the Metropolitan Police?, uncovers the forgotten history of the world’s oldest continuously serving police force. Don’t miss this free display before it closes on 14 January.
