First stop was the Imperial War Museum in Lambeth. A major renovation two years ago has livened the exhibits with impressive multimedia displays. The WW1 gallery is a somber reminder of the 100th anniversary commemorations taking place now and for the next few years. There are also exhibits to other wars involving Britain. The museum is free admission and is definitely worth visiting

Next stop was the Museum of London with its special Great Fire of London exhibit. It is 350 years since the disaster. The museum also covers the period from pre-history, the Roman invasion through to the Middle Ages and uncovers lots of fascinating archaeological discoveries.
