The British Museum

London, England
4.8 / 10
The main historical and archaeological museum of the country, one of the largest in the world. The building has about 100 exhibition halls, where exhibits are presented from all over the world - the former colonies of the British Empire. There are also ancient Egyptian and antique artifacts. Many countries demand to return the exhibits to their homeland, as it is believed that they got to the British Museum in a not entirely honest way.

On entering the inner court yard, you're greeted by natural light through the frosted transparent roof. The lobby is cavernous and airy. It thus sets you in the mood to embark on an exciting journey through time. There's no entrance fee. But, please.. Read more »


Love this museum. The building's architecture itself is magnificent. The main hall with its glass ceiling is impressive especially on a bright day. The content itself is fascinating. Lots to see so take your time and plan a good few hours just to run.. Read more »


The British Museum is very interesting (if you like that kinda stuff). Definitely rich in history from various periods (though I didn't get to see all). As a main London attraction, you can expect many visitors there eager to see the Rosetta Stone et.. Read more »


Simply astounding!! Having visited this absolutely incredible "Museum of, and, for the World" semi-regularly since 1971, I am still "gobsmacked" by its collection of 8+ million objects, covering about 2 million years. One might think that many visits.. Read more »


The exhibits are second to none but the crowds make it harder to enjoy. I must have came on school field trip day there was children running wild everywhere. Perhaps an evening would be better to visit. The museum itself is spectacular and very well .. Read more »


Probably the world's most impressive museum with exhibitions from all eras and areas of the world. The museum is free to enter, but be prepared to wait in line for a quite extensive security check, especially if you visit during the most busy hours l.. Read more »

Huge, stunning & immense place. Didn’t expected that even if I’d study it at school. That’s a huge building furnished with the best quality historical materials. From the Egyptian era to the most modern one. Definitely recommended.


What a magnificent building filled with incredible wealth of knowledge and history. You'll need a full day so get there early. Good restaurants, coffee shops, gift shops and helpful staff. I would say in my opinion this is one of the top museum in th.. Read more »
