Four museums to reopen in London
According to the Daily Telegraph, you'll be able to check out Camden's Jewish Museum once more as of tomorrow, which has been kept away from curious stares for a while in order to undergo a refurbishment that cost a whopping £14 million. Here, you'll learn all about how Jewish people were forced by Henry III to wear badges and tabulas way before the Nazis were even a whisper on the planet.
From there, head straight on over to Maritime Greenwich, which incorporates the Queen's House, Meridian and Observatory and the Old Royal Naval College, which has the Cutty Sark just chilling outside it. Lots of fun to be had here, of course and keep your eyes peeled for statues Gin and Beer.
Leighton House - which is open from April 3rd - has, according to the paper, "always been a special London secret". It's just finished an 18-month restoration and features all sorts of dazzling attractions, such as the statue of Icarus by the library doors.
Last but certainly not least is the reopening of the Galleries of Modern London, which cost £20 million and took five years to give the exhibition hall 25 per cent more space, providing visitors with more than 4,000 objects on display. "This is the biggest of all the spring openings," the publication observed.
