A museum of the world, for the world. Discover over two million years of human history and culture. Some of the world-famous objects include the Rosetta Stone, the Parthenon sculptures and Egyptian mummies.
The British Museum began from the collection of naturalist Sir Hans Sloane which he left to the nation on his death in 1753. Now it houses 7 million objects including more than 100 Egyptian mummies.
Forget the foreign plunder and head into the East wing for the fascinating Enlightenment galleries.
The Egyptian Exhibition is amazing and they have outstanding exhibitions
There is a great room full of sarcophagi downstairs from the large Egyptian works.
Visit the Parthenon Marbles and imagine how these would look under the bright Athens sunlight. It's time for the British Museum to allow the Marbles to be re-united at New Acropolis Museum of Athens.
Good place to keep in mind if you're in Bloomsbury and need the toilet. Oh, it also has a few artefacts, we hear.
Try and find the skeleton of the mermaid, ha. It's in one of the galleries on the right side of the Great Court as you walk in ;)
Learn about London's and UK's history by visiting this museum. Don't miss the Rosetta Stone and the collection of mummies. Open daily from 10am - 7:30pm (until 8:30 Fridays). Entrance is free.
There are at least 8 million objects within the museum! Come, see them all!
see Greek exhibitions and Asian art
It would be a good idea to donate some money as entry to the museum is free.
Listen to BBC Radio 4's series The History of the World in 100 Objects then go and visit them here!
Check out the Assyrian relief carvings of the royal lion hunt
no doubt, the biggest historical steal for the world ;)
Challenge by my 12-year-old to all others: try and find a statue of a man without something cut off. Hand, nose, arm, etc :-)
Don't be like the million other people around you, put your camera and phone away and seize the moment! Take the time to learn about the Rosetta stone and other historical facts!!
With some of the best exhibit and artworks in the world, the British Museum is appealing visually and stimulating for the mind. Within the museum, the Egyptian room and Rosetta Stone are a must-see.
Make sure you have a few spare hours if you plan on visiting the entire thing. Do not miss the mummies!
This 258 year old museum houses more than 7 million objects of history and culture. The Egyptian exhibit is very popular here.
Damn you can spent ours here, go check it out
BEST MUSEUM EVER ! I <3 mummies !
LOVE IT.... It has everything..
Brilliant museum and displays, but best of all is the new (ish) glass covered atrium with the old British Library Reading Room in the centre. Wonderful just to sit in.
Visit the Round Reading Library where Marx + Dickens read before checking out the Rosetta Stone and the Elgin marbles. – Green Guide Editor
1day not enaf to finish visit.too big n very beautiful
Visit room 49, case 6, to see the ‘Fulham Sword’. Found next to Craven Cottage it dates back to 43 AD, is the best example of its kind in Britain & is the best named sword in the Museum (so we think)
Best museum. I love the Egyptian zone.
There's more to see here than you could hope to in a day, why not take the 30 minute eye opener tour?
Be sure to hit the Sainsbury Gallery with the Elgin Marbles from the Parthenon. These architectural elements have been subject of a long battle between the UK and Greece.
The British Museum is a must must see in London and the UK. There is always something to discover, to learn and to see, no matter if you are interested in museums, history or not - you will get addict
Check out the ancient Egypt exhibit and see the Rosetta Stone.
The Chinese jade exhibit is great. Nice Guinness in the Museum Bar across the road.
Have lunch in the cheap and cheerful little Korean cafe (Bimbimbap) on Museum Street outside the main entrance.
Visit the Library frequented by Marx and Dickens. Don’t miss the Rosetta Stone, Elgin marbles, or Mildenhall treasure. – Green Guide Editor
Great place amazing collections. Pity that the glory of place comes from stolen items. Please return the marbles to Greece .
