Living in London - the pleasure is not cheap, but this does not mean that you need to give up leisure. In the capital there is a huge number of museums, galleries, classes and activities that can give an impressive rest and do not require the purchase of tickets or entrance fees.
Today we offer you a stroll through the most interesting museums in London, where you can get for free.
1. Museum of London
It is in this museum that you can go back in time and trace the entire history of London from the prehistoric period to modern times. The Museum of London has three floors, where various objects, exhibits, maps, models and reconstructions are on display. If you stroll around the museum counter-clockwise, you can see London during the Roman Empire, the ancient Saxons, the Middle Ages, the Great Fire and the Civil War.
In the garden at the museum you can relax, have a snack and a cup of coffee. Also, very often there are various exhibitions, seminars, lectures and screenings of documentary films.
Address: 150 London Wall, London EC2Y 5HN.
Opening hours: Monday to Sunday from 10:00 to 18:00.
2. British Museum
British Museum is the main historical and archaeological museum of Great Britain and the second most visited museum in the world (after Louvre). There are more than 13 million items in almost a hundred galleries. The exhibits demonstrate the development of art from the Paleolithic times to the present day. The museum collection includes a huge number of items from all over the world, so it is impossible to explore everything in full for one day. True connoisseurs of the works of Michelangelo, Durer, Botticelli, Raphael, Van Dyck, Rubens, Rembrandt and Van Gogh visit the British Museum on a regular basis.

3. The Chocolate Museum
This is an independent museum, created by the Frenchwoman Isabelle Alaya, who devoted her life to chocolate and the secrets of its making. In 2008, she founded her own brand Melange Chocolate in the UK, and in 2013 Madame Alaya opened the doors of the Museum of Chocolate. Now everyone can learn everything about the British chocolate industry and personally cook it by themselves, for example, a candy with fruits, nuts or spices.
