Museum of London Docklands

museum-of-london-docklands-dsc_8653

14 pics. The Museum of London Docklands ⇒ is in the Docklands region (nearest rail being West India Quay on the Docklands Light Railway) and is all about the history of the Docklands as distinct from the more extensive history of London at the Museum of London ⇐ at 150 London Wall. 

The Museum of London Docklands is full of historical information, is free to enter and non-commercial photography is allowed.

There is a lift that goes to the top floor, which is a good place to start.  I do prefer stairs that go down.
