I had a thoroughly good time visiting this unexpectedly interesting museum in Hoxton. The old building it is housed in, has been adapted beautifully to show the rooms over the years. There is a good explanation of the exhibits with paddle boards in every room. What I did not appreciate, was being followed by a security guard along the whole museum. I realise that thefts do happen, but I am sure there are cameras in all the rooms and I was made to feel uncomfortable.
There is a lovely garden outside and a cafe resembling a conservatory (serving good food and with wifi) overlooking it. I did not have time to visit the exhibit on the conversion of the old Arsenal stadium, but may return in future. On Wednesdays, there are tours of the almshouses and this would be very interesting.
There is a bus stop right outside with buses going towards Old St and Liverpool St. It is also just behind Hoxton Rail Station.
This was a good museum and was free.
