Docklands Museum

Museum of London Docklands, Isle of Dogs, London. The museum, which opened in 2003 in an old sugar warehouse, contains artefacts and displays telling the history of the Thames and Docklands area, from Roman times to the closure of the docks in the 1970’s and subsequent development into a busy business district. Among the many exhibits, you can get an insight into the role London played in the transatlantic slave trade and you can wander through recreated narrow streets of 150 years ago with sound effects of drunken sailors.
