5 different museums to see in London

When planning a trip to London we realize there are a lot of places to see, attractions to visit, pubs where to take a pint and markets to walk around. And it is true that there are places that are a “must” on a visit to the capital of the United Kingdom like seeing Big Ben, climbing the London Eye, entering the Tower of London or visiting the British Museum. But today we propose a visit to 5 different museums in London, if in addition to seeing the typical, you want to enjoy other visits outside the conventional circuit.

In fiction, Detective Sherlock Holmes lived at 221 Baker Street. In real life, this is the address of the Museum dedicated to this character. This home is decorated as it would have been in Victorian times (the famous detective would have lived there with Dr. Watson between 1881 and 1904). There you will find personal objects of the two characters as well as notes and objects from their published cases.
