Here at Tti , we do love our culture and in honour of Museum Week here in the UK , our staff have put together a list of some of our favourite places to peruse great art, creepy exhibitions and ancient treasures!
1. Victoria & Albert Museum (South Kensington)
Our Sales girl , Mel, adores the Victoria and Albert museum. In her spare time , she works as the Creative Director for East London Radio , a community radio station based in Hackney. This February , they were invited to set up a pop up radio booth inside the V&A ! Here she is in action in her favourite museum!
2. British Museum (Russel Square):
Our teacher John says…
I love getting lost in the British museum, even though I’ve been there over 50 times! It’s my favourite museum in London because it contains so many stories of the human condition. It is the most concise history of the world ever collected. But it also reveals the history one culture’s dominance over the rest; the conquests, sacrifices, journeys and tragedies. From Egypt to Australia, every room and every object informs us that the human story is long, rich and has many lessons to tell us today. We should learn from them.
3. Hunterian Museum – Inside the Royal College of Surgeons (Holborn Station)
Our teacher Sam loves the Hunterian Museum! This museum explores the history of surgery with lots of strange things in jars! There is a giant skeleton and different animals on display! It’s free to enter and you can find the Sir John Soane’s Museum across the way and it is inside the Royal College of Surgeons so it’s not a big tourist hot spot!

Sam took his class out to explore this London secret spot this week !
4.Tate Modern (St. Paul’s Station)
Our teacher and Social Programme Coordinator, Marianne , says that The Tate Modern is one of her favourites because she is a big fan of all the contemporary and modern art. She also loves the book shop and the view you get from the 4th floor cafe! It is a must if you are in London and not to be missed! In the summertime, there are also concerts and events on the front lawn so it is a great way to be near the Thames and to get your fix of culture!
5. Natural History Museum (South Kensington Station)
