You won’t be surprised to hear that London consists of major museums and art galleries; But you may be surprised to hear that most offer free admission! Here’s a list of the best museums you can visit for free.

Natural History Museum: Located in South Kensington, the Natural History Museum is a beautiful Victorian building containing both the weird and beautiful of our natural world. We recommended visiting on weekdays, as there are normally long lines on weekends and holidays!

National Gallery: This gallery contains one of the finest collections of Western European paintings in the world. You’ll find works from artists such as Botticelli and Michelangelo. The National Gallery takes up the entire north side of Trafalgar Square.
