THE ADMISSION charge has been scrapped at a popular Docklands museum.

Adults will now get in free at the seven-year-old Museum of London Docklands, rather than paying £5 and it will still be free for children.

The tab has been picked up by the Greater London Assembly and the City of London instead.

The museum is based in a warehouse on West India Quay built in 1802 and covers more than 2,000 years of history surrounding the Port of London and the people who have lived and worked in Docklands since Roman times.

Last year's Jack the Ripper exhibition attracted 150,000 visitors and the museum usually draws 100,000 annually.

Girl Guides are expected to flock to Docklands when a new show Here Come the Girl Guides:100 Years of Guiding in London opens on 26 June.

The museum is open from 10am to 6pm daily.
