London is home to a wealth of museums, but few are as surprising and quirky as south London's Horniman Museum. Located in the suburb of Forest Hill, it's certainly off the tourist trail and gives visitors a much more hands-on experience than a lot of its more famous cousins, allowing people to touch, play and even try on some of the exhibits.
The museum was founded in the Victorian era when Frederick John Horniman opened his house and extraordinary collection of artefacts to the public. The museum has grown and grown since then, and is famed for its important collections of anthropology and musical instruments. It's also home to an aquarium, and its natural history gallery is dominated by an amusingly over-stuffed walrus, which was apparently the work of an over-zealous taxidermist.
