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.
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.
The Egyptian Exhibition is amazing and they have outstanding exhibitions
There is a great room full of sarcophagi downstairs from the large Egyptian works.
Good place to keep in mind if you're in Bloomsbury and need the toilet. Oh, it also has a few artefacts, we hear.
no doubt, the biggest historical steal for the world ;)
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.
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 ;)
There are at least 8 million objects within the museum! Come, see them all!
Check out the Assyrian relief carvings of the royal lion hunt
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.
It would be a good idea to donate some money as entry to the museum is free.
see Greek exhibitions and Asian art
Listen to BBC Radio 4's series The History of the World in 100 Objects then go and visit them here!
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 :-)
Great place amazing collections. Pity that the glory of place comes from stolen items. Please return the marbles to Greece .
This 258 year old museum houses more than 7 million objects of history and culture. The Egyptian exhibit is very popular here.
Make sure you have a few spare hours if you plan on visiting the entire thing. Do not miss the mummies!
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!!
Wonderful stuff. Incredibly rich collection. Fact is, shouldn't all these be given back to their rightful owners?
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.
Damn you can spent ours here, go check it out
Stunning building with the glass roof!
Thieves! Return the greek marbles! 😡
BEST MUSEUM EVER ! I <3 mummies !
LOVE IT.... It has everything..
British Museum says: "We stole everything from all around the world, you can see this by visiting me."
Parthenon marbles do not belong here!!! They belong to the new acropolis museum in athens beside parthenon!!!
Visit the Round Reading Library where Marx + Dickens read before checking out the Rosetta Stone and the Elgin marbles. – Green Guide Editor
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
Amazing building, great selection of (stolen?) treasures from each and every corner of the earth. Don't miss it!
All these fantastic (stolen) items should be returned to the original owners!! Parthenon marbles must go back to Greece at the NEW Acropolis museum!!
Was so excited to visit here and see the Egyptian exhibition. Stunning museum
One of the world's oldest and one of London's largest museums. Join us on our first timers' walk on Mondays featuring highlights such as the Rosetta Stone, the Parthenon Marbles and Lindow Man.
One of my faves, the British Museum is the world's oldest museum, opened in 1753. There are countless items dating from prehistory exposed in its 94 galleries, belonging to worldwide civilizations.
Return the marbles. And put down the ridiculous sign about how you got them. A propaganda against Greece. If you dont have anything to show of your own then show nothing at all.
