Museum in Docklands (London)
The Museum in Docklands is one of the newest museums in London.
Opened in 2003, it is situated in the vast former docklands area of the East End of London, which has been subject to enormous regeneration in the closing years of the 20th century and the opening years of the 21st.
It is housed in a former warehouse on West India Quay, which was built to hold rum, sugar and molasses imported from the Caribbean.
The museum tells the story of London`s relationship with the River Thames including the work that was done in the area and the people who worked and lived there.
There are displays on every aspect of the city and its river, including the famous Frost Fairs, and what are known as aromatic effects.
