Mostly art, the TransAmerican Latin display was good, there are local London artists works but very little actual museum artifacts. Only two rooms, one with washing machines and the other with typewriters, pens, inkwells etc. A little disappointed

Great displays of various mediums in the art world. Local artists featured is a lovely setting. Kids have a play area all their own.

This place clearly has an identity crisis: Is it an art gallery or a history museum? Unfortunately, it performs neither function well. Despite having a wonderful venue within which to display art and artifacts, the curators have filled the space with temporary exhibitions that could only be of marginal interest to London visitors. As a history museum, Museum London can't... More

This is a bigger regional museum with multiple exhibits and a gift shop. There are curated contemporary shows as well as historical inventory. We went through quickly, but there are many events and activities and membership is good for other Ontario museums, as well. We enjoyed the café. Great coffee and treats. Also, the water garden outside was really lovely,... More

What can I say? I'm not interested in weird looking art from any age. It's not horrible but it's just boring. Will visit again if it had artifacts about London

This must have been by special arrangement because the rest of the gallery was closed, but this wedding party really outdid themselves. Wonderful bar selection, great food, great service, and they had decorated the place to their own taste. The sound system worked well and the view of the forks of the Thames river fromt the high arched windows was... More

Museum London is in an interesting building right by the river. I wasn't sure what to expect, but passed a very enjoyable afternoon there! There is a nice art collection, including some notable Canadian pieces, but I found the historical exhibitions much more satisfying. The first thing I saw was display of toys and games - including toys that I... More

This museum is strikingly modern on the inside, and even features works of art from the Group of Seven. Definitely worth a visit, especially during art openings.

Paul Peel and Group of Seven works definitely worth stopping by for. There are also historical exhibits on the city of London and the importance of the Thames River in the city's progression.

They have a great program for free on Sunday afternoons for families to come and create art in the gallery studio! Would recommend for creative thinkers! They have many more great programs for all ages, most are free, to check out as well!
