London is chock full of amazing museums. One can spend a whole month just touring the big ones, like The British Museum or the Victoria and Albert – both public museums with free admission. However, there are some really cool small commercial museums well worth a visit. Two nice finds are just outside Covent Garden: The London Transport Museum, and the London Film Museum.x

The London Film Museum is currently featuring the exhibition Bond in Motion: “Bond in Motion is the official exhibition of James Bond vehicles that feature in the renowned film series. It is the largest display of its kind ever staged in London. James Bond first hit the big screen in 1962, when Ian Fleming’s 007 was introduced to cinema audiences around the world as the double o agent in Dr No. Half a century and six Bonds later, the franchise is now one of the longest running in cinema history.”
