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.
A must-see of course but I always feel like I'm wandering around in a thief's vault. Most of the heritage held in the museum are taken there under colonial possession and actually don't belong there.
A must-do if you are visiting London. Just take enough time to enjoy every piece of art. There is a huge variety of artworks, you will surely find something interesting or appealing to you!
Take a look at the beautiful Japanese gallery. Beginning with this simple and complete map was the most incredible surprise i could have at the entry, best way to enter into another world!
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)
This is indeed one of the best museums in the world! Basically you can find anything you want in there. Don't forget to check out ancient Egypt, Iran (Persia), & Greece.
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
Possibly the best collection of ancient history anywhere in the world. The British Museum is not nearly as expansive as the Louvre but its focus is much more on anthropological heritage than cultural.
stunning free entry courtyard with a glass roof. there is plenty of things to see in a day however feel free yourself to skip pathernonrelieferna. that side dirty and damged.
The museum is huge!Be sure to read what is in before you go there or the visiting will be useless for you. It shows how Great the Great Britain is. Strong historic place.Don't forget the audio guide.
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
The British Museum is a fantastic museum and a beautiful building on its own. If you love museums, you'll love the BM. If you're not a big museum fan, spend a little less time there, but don't miss it
Do your research ahead of time to decide what's important to see. We saw the Pompeii Exhibit and thought it was extremely well done. Great lunch spots and it's worth the trip just to view the space.
One of the biggest museums in the world. It reflects the domination of UK all over the world throughout recent history. Different pieces from all over the world. Definitely it is worth to be seen
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.
favourite museum in London. main hall space, Queen Elizabeth II Great Court, is just gorgeous — raise your eyes on the ceiling. btw, this place contains one of the largest ancient Egypt expositions.
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.
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.
Very rich collection of ancient Egyptian, Greek, Roman, European and Asian artefacts. The Rosette stone and Ramses II head are among the most famous pieces. Free WiFi.
If you have limited time make sure to check in advance which exhibition part is where, as the museum is enormous. Look in the atrium for free maps, they also exist, apart from the £2 ones!
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
My new favorite place. Pillaging aside, the Hutton Soo and Egyptian exhibits are a must see (um, Rosetta Stone anyone?). As is the legendary Crystal Skull, which is on display despite being a fake!
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.
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.
The Egyptian rooms often get extremely crowded, but the Middle Eastern pieces on the lower floors are really amazing. The Assyrian works are globally unique, and the China India wing is worth a visit
I've been in nearly all the major museums of the world, the British museum put all the history at hand for free. Don't forget the Rosetta Stone, The Partenon Frescoes and The Ishtar Door.
As a long-time admirer of assyrian art (yes, there's a bunch of us left), I enjoyed. A LOT. Plus, there you get to see part of the hammurabi code, the oldest law code in history (1772 BC)
The British Museum has an amazing collection of non-western art, as well as the unmissable Elgin Marbles and Egyptian art section. They also have occasional Japanese Tea Ceremony demonstrations!
One of the best museums I have ever been! The best of all is absolutely FREE .. and it's enormous! In addition you can relax by drinking some coffee or eating a snack at the restaurant !
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.
Whenever I visit, it is nearly always the unnoticed items that appeal the most - the round granite bowl in the Egyptian section is a prime example - beautifully made from solid stone-but why and how?
For parents on the weekend skip coat check and go to the ford family center on-1. Large lockers to put everything in, plus lunch tables. Grab food from one of the cages, plenty of seats here
If there's a big crowd around the Rosetta Stone, try heading across the way to the Enlightenment gallery. There's a replica of the Stone in there, and - bonus! - this one you're allowed to touch.
Pick out your favourite things in the map as soon as you go in. Otherwise after a couple of hours you may get fed up. The section with the mummy's seemed to be very popular - traffic jam alert
Don't try and see it all. Get a map and a cup of tea and work out what you really want to see. I love the displays on Roman Britain, clocks, money and the Ancient Greek friezes.
14 February: Seek out Aphrodite on St Valentine's Day. At the heart of the Ancient Greece & Rome section is a romantic version of Aphrodite, goddess of love, showing her crouching at her bath.
Wonderful museum, with much to see and adore! Free entrance fee. You'll get to know everything about the civilization of places, such as Greece, Cyprus, Egypt and Messopotamia and Italy!
Call in advance to go to the Prints and Drawings room. They will give you desk space and over see your viewing of some of the greatest artist in history, up close and private
Lots and lots of Ancient Egyptian stuff, but you'll find a lot about Persian, Assyrian, Roman, Greek and Asian as well....mind you they took all of these, they weren't acquired...
For yound kids, head to the Paul Hamlyn Library for some chill out time reading on the rug in the kiddies' corner. Small area but the librarian was very attentive. Great to get away from the tourist
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!
Maybe one of the biggest history museum in the world. One day NOT enough to explore all section of this museum. Free admission except special exhibition #Traveling #London
An amazing collection overall. You could spend days wandering this museum. It can get very busy in the summer, but in the off season it's a slice of museum heaven.
Do not miss a chance to see Shakespeare's own writings, the first folio, Southampton's portrait... etc. Parts of the plays recorded for this exhibition by the actors of RSC help you to feel the magic.
To cover the entire museum, you would probably need 2 days at the very minimum. Try arriving early to avoid the crowds. Short walk from Tottenham Court Road tube station.
