Fire! Fire! The Museum of London marks the 350th anniversary of the Great Fire of 1666 with a special interactive exhibition, Fire! Fire! . Inviting visitors to explore London before, during and after the fire, the exhibition will feature rarely seen artefacts alongside hands on exhibits which will explore how the fire started and spread and give an insight into personal stories of Londoners who were there at the time. You'll be able to get a sense of what it was like to be there and learn how the city we know today rose from the ashes.

Following a £20 million redesign, the five lower Galleries of Modern London take you through the history of the city from the Great Fire of London in 1666 to the present day.
