We've long been fans of Museum of London, its Docklands sister and terribly good archaeological arm. To complement the physical refit their London Wall home is undergoing, the group has today announced a colourful rebranding, and simplification of its different parts to Museum of London, Museum of London Docklands and Museum of London Archaeology. We approve of the groovy London through the ages 'thumbprint' and are faintly relieved that we won't have to double check the Docklands venue's proper name any more (Museum of/in/of the Docklands?!)
They've also properly integrated their websites so you can browse the 2 museums and rootle round the archaeologists' site and feel like you're all under one informative roof.
And while we're about it, a reminder that the very successful Jack the Ripper and the East End exhibition closes on 2 November. There's still time to book for a grisly guided walk on 29 October from 6pm to regale you with the murky details of 5 morbid murders (£7.50, book your place).
