I popped into the MOL Docklands briefly to see the Soldiers and Suffragettes: The photography of Christina Bloom. Although very impressive that this woman had a career as a photographer at a time when women were very oppressed, I was disappointed to find that there wasn't any representation of Black and Asian soldiers & suffragettes which were very evident during the war. Perhaps the museum...more

The museum is well designed and interesting and fun to visit.more

It has been a lifesaver with a toddler. There is a café on site...more

It's free!

(but make a donation, mmmkay?) Keep cool things in London free. Or at least buy a little something from the cafe or gift shop. My husband thought it would be hilarious to buy a little rubber toy rat for our son. It's consequently freaked out every person that has come to visit us. It's now mysteriously absent -- makes me think the babysitter threw it out. Regardless! Support...more
