The Museum in Docklands documents the history of London’s river and port, from the Roman settlement of the port to its recent regeneration. It is located in a 19th Century warehouse at West India Quay, which was originally used to house exotic spices, rum and cotton. It now holds various objects, from whale bones to World War II gas masks. The museum has 12 state-of-the-art galleries including 'Mudlarks', an interactive educational area for children and 'Sailor Town' a re-creation of the streets and alleyways of riverside Wapping. Remember to check out the museum bar and restaurant.
