We found great results, but some are outside Beckenham. Showing results in neighbouring cities.
Limit search to Beckenham.
Bethlem Museum of the Mind
#1 of 3 Museums in Beckenham
356 Bus stop opposite Bethlam terminates one stop after then passes site on way back as above slightly different from other Museums but well worth a visit
We went on a day of a guided tour of the extensive grounds, followed by a short guided tour of the museum which was very worthwhile.
Horniman Museum and Gardens London, UK 4.4 km away

Yes I know London is full of museums,but this is a gem about 25 mins from the centre and has wooded grounds for walks and stunning views over London.
A bit out the way of the London museums but well worth the journey.
Dulwich Picture Gallery London, UK 5.9 km away

At the same time you can view their permanent collection which is on par with any the old masters you would see in larger museums.
Just a 15 minute train ride from Victoria Station takes you to this little gem of a museum specializing in 17th and 18th Century Dutch, and other European, Masters.

Churchill War Rooms London, UK 12.7 km away
#2 of 402 Museums in London
ONe of the most fascinating museums I have seen, The rooms are preserved exactly how they were during the war, narration was excellent and the cafe complements the tour.
The Churchill War Rooms are part of the Imperial War Museums and very much worth a visit for anyone who knew of Churchill and/or is interested in the role of Britain in the Second World War.

We have visited lots of ships and maritime museums and displays, and yes they all have the same basic things to see, but if you love historic vessels then you really should make the time to see it - it 's the Cutt...

Peter Harrison Planetarium London, UK 7.9 km away
#73 of 402 Museums in London
The observatory itself is good however I would recommend paying for the planetarium and then taking advantage of the free maritime museum / royal naval college if you are limited for time/budget.
After we bought our tickets we had a drink in the cafe and had a look at the museum.

It is every bit as good as the other great museums I have seen- Louvre, Met, Hermitage, Uffizi etc. Wonderful collection of renaissance art as well as excellent impressionist collection.
A great collection of art, worth a visit every time you are in London but if you want to enjoy a great evening, check the cultural activities on every Friday, when several museums and galleries in London are open...

The museum itself is in a wonderful old warehouse in West India Quay that's been lovingly restored/transformed into one of the best museums of its kind we've ever seen.
I have visited London over the past several years for holiday and each time I visit Museums and Art Galleries, I wish I had visited this museum sooner.

This has got to be one of the best War Museums, well worth a visit, free entry, lots of war history, WW1 WW2 the cold war etc, over a few floors but so interesting and so much to see and read about !!
... visited when it comes to the nr of exhibits, but it is a beautiful museum, loved the displays and they have some really nice WWI and WWII pieces so it's well worth the visit, one of the nicest museums for sure.

Quieter than touristy museums but worth it for panini tings and the special exhibitions...definitely a must do and super close to Houses of Parliament with a river view walk along the river.
With so many incredible art museums in London it can be hard to choose, but if you want to experience British art, I would enthusiastically recommend the Tate Britain.

Y'all, this has to be one of the most underrated and little-known museums in London!
Small and vintage, but this in my eyes underlines the nature of it being a former operating site, so more honest compared to glossy modern museums.

This is a ‘must’ visit if you come to London and want to avoid the crowd in the many galleries and museums in central London.
The fact that the gallery is FREE is a welcome change from other galleries who always want to put on a "paid exhibition" section - so often make seeing Art a expensive day out for families- the design museum wante...
