Insider tip: An enjoyable way to reach the museum is to walk over Tower Bridge from the Tower of London, turn left after the bridge and walk along the waterfront. Or, instead of walking along the waterfront, walk on the narrow pedestrian road between the converted old warehouses. There are a number of good eateries and shops on the walk, and the museum itself has a basic café and an interesting shop.
