Britain at War Museum|
64-66 Tooley Street, SE1
Nearest Tube: London Bridge
This museum's full name is the Winston Churchill's Britain at War and it chronicles the experiences of Londoners during the Blitz of World War II.
There is all manner of war memorabilia on display, including posters, ration books and a variety of old gas masks. And you can experience what it was like to sit in either an Anderson air raid shelter or a tube station shelter.
But perhaps the most poignant part of the museum is the mock up of a recently bombed street, complete with noises, smoke and heat.
The Winston Churchill's Britain at War Experience is open daily from 10am-5.30pm between April and September and from 10am-4.30pm between October and March. Admission costs around £6 for adults.
