Museum Tavern

The Museum Tavern is a Grade II listed public house at 49 Great Russell Street, Bloomsbury, London.[1]

It was built from about 1855–64 by William Finch Hill and Edward Lewis Paraire.[1]

It is a CAMRA Heritage Pub, with a Regionally Important historic interior. Unusually, it is a regular outlet for Theakston's Old Peculier on cask.[2]

Karl Marx was a notable regular to this pub as it was in close proximity to the British Museum Reading Room, where he wrote Das Kapital.
