London Day 4; Museums

London Day 4
We decided to check out various museums around the city on this day. They were all expansive, easy to reach, and best of all, free! We visited everything from the Lindow Man (preserved in a bog for hundreds of years) to scenes of London's history and stories of the Great Fire.
The museums are a treasure on their own and Londoner's should be so proud to host such a fabulous collection of history, all free for the public to visit.

In the photo below, a museum employee was allowing the kids to handle coins, tools, and knives which were used over 2000 years ago.


Before we knew it, the time had come to pack up and head for the wedding in Spain.
It seems noteworthy at this point to mention that I was amused by the exit signs. They are not marked "EXIT" as we're accustomed to, but instead "WAY OUT". After 4 busy days in the city of London, it was time for us to find our 'way out'. We hope to go back.

In the meantime, on to Spain,..where we had no idea what was in store for us!
