Museum of London Docklands

I love this Museum! If you’re looking for a great place to take your family, the Museum of London Docklands has something for everyone.  Located in a stunning early nineteenth-century former sugar warehouse on West India Quay in London’s Docklands, the Museum tells the story of the docks, the River Thames and London’s role as an important centre for global trade.
