Home to over 8-million items, the British Museum is one of the largest of its kind in the world, curating items that reveal the story of human culture from its beginning to the present. Consider visiting it as not just visiting a museum, but the far flung corners of the world and its history.
It’s difficult to say which areas not to miss, and we’d recommend spending a good amount of time there, but its most famous assets include the Rosetta Stone, Parthenon Sculptures and the Mummy of Katebet.
Open to the public since 1879, the museum has expanded dramatically to keep up with its ever-growing collections and popularity. Involved in excavations and work worldwide, we can only envisage such expansion to continue, which is reassuring as it’s certainly a place to visit time and time again.
