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.
