The Museum of London Pepys exhibition is great!
Went yesterday, spent 45 minutes just in the Pepys exhibition, another two hours in the museum. Pepys was interested in shoes and ships and sealing wax, kings -- everything but cabbages!
Well worth checking out ... but no mention of www.pepysdiary.com. I recommended they install a computer with internet connections so users could link into that day's diary. Perhaps one of you London readers could pester the MoL to do so?
