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

    The ground floor is very crowded, but in the ones above there are also fantastic archeological treasures

    Free admission. You could spend days in here. Pro tip: Take the Elevetor to the top floor and go down from there to save energy.

    The British museum is just ok in my opinion, and the cafe/restaurant is a bit overpriced! At least entry to the museum itself is free.

    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.

    Not been here for the longest time. Still a fantastic venue and good for a family trip. Best of all it remains free to enter. Need a whole day to explore properly.

    Really busy in the expected areas like the Egyptian history sections but don't miss all the other treasures that lie in less populated areas!!

    Great art, especially from the ancient world. A must visit while in London. History lovers as myself are going to have a great time here.

  • Devonta

    Huge! Map out the exhibits you want to visit before you come. Free but recommend a 5 pound donation.

    I love this place. So much history but it will take a whole day. A place where you will have to spend the whole day.

    Музей оказался не таким интересным и понятным как Лувр. Хотя сама архитектура необычна.

    Andrey Korolev · June 28

    Bir Louvre Müzesi veya Vatikan değil... oraları gezdikten sonra burası az hafif kaldı...

  • Priya T.

    Another good exhibition - Defining Beauty

  • Khalid G.

    The Ancient Egyptian exhibition never fails to teach me something new. There's a lot of secrets nestled away in that exhibit...

    Khalid Golding · June 19
  • David

    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.

    It's easy to get lost in art and history here... Too bad your art history class doesn't do more field trips here. Read more

    Much more intersting than i can imagine :)

  • Abdurrhman A.

    جمييييييييييل والدخول مجاني وبعض الأجنحة بفلوس.. جناح العملات شي رهييب أعجبني مرة .. عمومًا اكثر الأجنحة مريت عليها مرور بس.. لكن بعضها كان الوقوف حتمي 😍

  • Salwan F.

    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...

    Salwan Finj · June 12
  • Abdulla B.

    Egyptian mummies can be found here 💀

  • Theo Lateralus Y.

    If it says, "Don't touch," please DO NOT TOUCH. There's even a symbol👈🏻 this goes for tour guides too!

  • 3asak

    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.

    Visiting to see the excellent collection of artefacts goes without saying. But the building itself is an awesome piece of architecture and a great place to people watch.

    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

  • Sergio F.

    Obligatorio prepararse la visita antes de entrar con las 10 cosas más importantes. En caso contrario sólo queda sumirse en la desesperación más absoluta.

    Sehr interessantes und vor allem sehr umfangreiches Museum.

  • Antonis T.

    More like "Anything but British Museum". Stolen pieces from all over the world! However, exhibits are well preserved and presented.

  • Daniele P.

    One of the best museums in the World. Assirian and Egyptian scultures are a must-see

    Daniele P · May 12
  • Chelsea B.

    See Cleopatra's final resting place, with an x ray view.

  • Hanna-Riina K.

    Free entrance, no queue, simply walk in and choose which exhibition you wanna explore.
