"It's a bird...it's a plane...it's Superman!" Authentic memorabilia of the classic cultural icon which has transcended generations is just one of many reasons to check out The London Film Museum.
You won't find any dusty geology display cabinets or scary-looking taxidermy here! The London Film Museum (formerly known as the London Movieum) is part museum, part attraction and definitely a fun outing for visitors of all ages. It is a unique place as it's the only museum in the UK solely dedicated to film history and film making.
Since the museum opened its doors in just 2008, the collection of memorabilia from both classic and contemporary feature films is continually growing. You will find displays of props, costumes and sets including an original Superman outfit worn by Christopher Reeve, and Joaquin Phoenix and Russell Crowe's outfits from Gladiator.
Also on temporarily, to coincide with the release of the new "Clash of the Titans" film, the museum has been loaned five of the incredible costumes from the film. These will be on display on the Red Carpet until mid-May so get down there before it closes.
Other attractions of the museum include information about the history of some of Britain's film studios, interview footage with famous actors, and an animation gallery. Take away your own souvenir by having your picture taken on a recreation of the Star Wars Tantive IV set.
It may not be the biggest or most famous of London's plethora of museums, but it's certainly a nice choice for film and entertainment buffs.
