    Head straight for the Great Court. What a sight to behold, especially in a sunny day.

    Go early! Once the tourists start filling in you'll never see more then the tip of the Rosetta Stone! (and the entrance on the other side of the building is a less impressive but easier way to get in

    Go for the locally British galleries, they are more informative than the foreign ones.

    It's the freaking British Museum - one of the world's best, and for free! Too bad most of the stuff really belongs in other countries...

    It is not one of the main highlights, but the double headed Aztec serpent is marvelous. Come and see for yourself.

    Den Multimedia Guide kann man sich getrost sparen. Die sagen auch nur, was auf den Tafeln steht.

  • Elliott B.

    Massive museum. A lot of walking. Not much place to sit. Too much to see in one visit. 3 hours is enough before you want to go. Cafes and restaurant in Grand Court area. Limited tables for those.

    Elliott Brown · August 26
  • Elizabeth

    It's free and there is so much to see. The highlights include the Parthenon, Cleopatra and a Moai. We spent most of an afternoon in here even with the kids.

    Elizabeth · August 21

    Harika. Anadoludan eserlerin götürülmesi üzüntü verici. Fakat biz kaçırılan eserlere gerekli ilgiyi ve Özeni gösterebilir miydik? Kararı siz verin...
