One of the best things to do in London as a tourist is to explore the excellent museums and galleries. There are almost 200 museums in total, many of which are free to visit. These are the top 9 museums to visit during your next stay at the Central Park Hotel in Bayswater.

Natural History Museum

Perhaps the most famous of all, the Natural History Museum has an incredible dinosaur gallery devoted to the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous periods. Additional permanent galleries explore creepy crawlies, volcanoes and earthquakes, gems and minerals, and conversation. The special exhibitions are always worth the extra cost. 

Science Museum

The Science Museum in South Kensington is one of the best places to visit with kids while staying at our hotels near Central London. Interactive exhibits take you through groundbreaking advancements across motoring, space travel, robotics, and general technology.

Design Museum

Now stationed in Holland Park within walking distance of the Central Park Hotel Bayswater, the Design Museum is dedicated to contemporary design and cutting-edge technology. It showcases the latest innovations across gadgets, computers, homeware, sports, and beyond. Much of the artefacts appear in everyday life.

National Gallery

The National Gallery in Trafalgar Square contains one of the largest collections of European art. The works on display include Byzantine, Renaissance, Impressionist, and Dutch Masters masterpieces. It’s one of the best places to see the likes of Leonardo da Vinci, Pablo Picasso, Michelangelo, Claude Monet, and Vincent Van Gogh.

Victoria & Albert Museum

The Victoria & Albert Museum is devoted to decorative arts from around the world. This vast museum contains ceramics, sculptures, paintings, textiles, and jewellery. Special exhibitions delve into fashion trends, icons, and more.

Imperial War Museum

The Imperial War Museum is primarily devoted to World War I and World War II. Galleries recreate the horror of the trenches and the Blitz. It’s a sobering experience that emphasises the plight of the innocent citizens impacted by both wars and serves to remind us that war is never the answer. A third gallery is devoted to more recent conflicts. 

Museum of the Home

The Museum of the Home is located in East London. It is laid out as a series of domestic spaces featuring original furniture and typical decoration through the ages, However, the purpose of the museum is to shed insight into the lifestyles and cultures of people through the ages. It will inspire you to consider your own interpretation of home. 

Sherlock Holmes Museum

The Sherlock Holmes Museum is the only museum on this list with an admission fee.
