London has done it right, they’ve made their many museums completely accessible to everyone. Unlike other art hub cities (ahem…New York City) – London has made their museum admission completely free encouraging everyone to enjoy and hopefully appreciate the art treasures inside. I only had a short time in London, but I was able to get to a couple of museums thanks to the ‘free’ policy. The free policy allows you to simply make a quick stop in a museum and stay for a couple of hours to maybe see a particular wing or exhibit and not feel like you have to spend the whole day there to recoup the value of the ticket. My stops included the Natural History Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum (which is massive). I ran out of time for the modern art I wanted to see, but I know that next time I’m back in London I can simply pop on it for a bit and check it out!
London is full of museums, so be sure to make a stop in a few of them…you don’t have to stay long!
