DOCKLANDS MUSEUM

Within our trip to canary wharf we decided to visit Museum of London Docklands which showcased the history of the River Thames and London’s docks from the founding of the Roman settlement of Londinium to the demise of the working docks and the subsequent revival of docklands to become one of the world’s major financial districts. The museum is large and provides a comprehensive overview with historical artifacts, pictures and models including a recreation of a historic alley and quay and a scale model of the old London Bridge. The most interesting exhibition in my opinion was the exhibition that showcased how slavery evolved and eventually discarded.
