I lived in London for 29 years but its only now I've moved away that I got round to coming here. Spectacular collections of artefacts, statues and art from around the globe reflecting the time when the globe was coloured pink.

The Museum is hot, crowded, and busy - which all adds to the ambience of the place! All staff that we spoke to were wonderful; helpful, friendly, and informative. The exhibits are stunning, a day is not long enough to fully comprehend them - I...More

The British Museum is a fabulous place to visit, wander, or duck in from the rain. You cannot hope to see all the treasures within - even in a lifetime. Thankfully, the museum is free, however special exhibits/exhibitions are not. Check their website when you...More

We have visited the Rodin Garden in Paris a few times and it's great to see some of his iconic statues here in the British Museum together with the Greek and Roman statues which were his inspiration. It's a "MUST SEE" exhibition!

I had heard a lot about it, even then when I entered the museum I was mind blown. It was beyond my expectation. You need several days to see everything thoroughly. At times you'll get lost and you'll love to get lost in there.

You could wander here for a week and still not see it all. Take tours when possible. Huge crowds in Egyptian area. Great photos. The organization never made great sense to me, but the museum offers a brochure to highlight the high spots. Expect to...More
