    Nice place to learn about all the greeks endlessly crying about "stolen goods". They probably would've sold it all had the Brits not nicked it. No one cares. Quit whining and go sort your country.

    Great to explore alone. Members area is nicely tucked away with great drinks and most importantly fast internet. Not open late enough though.

    I found it on par with the Louvre in terms on impressive exhibits. Sort of scary to see kids touching Egyptian artifacts

    Extraordinary collections from many cultures and periods. You could spend a whole day here and not see everything.

    Kevin McCulley · February 21
  • Marie S.

    Very, very crowded. If you actually want to look at art and not just take instagram pictures of the exhibits, avoid the crowds by going early in the morning.

    Venha com bastante tempo, pois são muitas galerias sobre vários momentos das civilizações mais notórias. Egito, Grécia, Império Romano, Idade Média, relógios e moedas são meus destaques.

    Huge museum with crafts from all over the world. Free entrance, no fuss to go in and out, so there is no need to make it worth. Enjoy it as a stroll in the park!

    This museum has on its focus international culturals all around the world. For me the best part was the Egiptian, upatairs you can see the mummies. The greek part has a lot of sculptures from Partheon

    In any legitimate list of worlds best museums this will be on the list towards the top. You can't miss it. Half the artifacts in any history book that still exist are here. Pretty amazing.

    Türkiye eserlerinden bazıları üzücü ancak Türkiye'de bu şekilde korunabilir miydi düşünülmeli.. Ninova ve Nemrut bölgeleri ile ilgili müzemiz bile yok..
