Truth be told, despite all the reading and researching I did before our trip to London, the London Film Museum had eluded me! As a matter of fact, I didn’t know of its existence until I stood right in front of it one afternoon in London. And that’s when I realized that they had a James Bond Special Exhibit!
James Bond movies are probably something most of us have watched at one time. Curious, I walked in the door to find out what it was all about. The guy behind the counter gave me a quick rundown of the museum, so I decided to fork over the £ 15.00 admission price.
The museum isn’t very big, but nicely spaced out over three floors. On display is the largest collection of the original vehicles used during the filming of the 007 movies. There were giant screens playing James Bond movies, outfits worn by the actors, passports, some miniature prototypes of movie scenes, a gift shop and even a cafe.
It didn’t take me very long to look at everything there. Weekdays seem to be less crowded. So if you are a James Bond fan, it’s definitely worth seeing, but I do feel like it’s overpriced.
The originally temporary exhibit is now indefinite, due to its popularity. If you find yourself near Covent Garden, stop by and check it out! It is really cool to see all the vehicles used during the making of these movies!
And really! Who doesn’t like 007?!?!
