The Museum in DocklandsThe Museum in Docklands unlocks the history of London’s river, port and people in a 19th-century warehouse at West India Quay. Originally used to house imports of exotic spices, rum and cotton, it now holds a wealth of objects from whale bones to WWII gas masks. The nine state-of-the-art galleries include ‘Mudlarks’, an interactive educational area for children and ‘Sailortown’ an atmospheric re-creation of the streets and alleyways of riverside Wapping as they would have appeared in the early nineteenth century.museumin docklands
