The British Museum is one of the premier museums of the world. With one of the finest collections spanning two million years of human existence and everything ranging from Ancient Egyptian and Far-Eastern civilizations to Meso-American cultures, the British museum has a fascinatingly dizzying variety of objects showcased. A Visitor guide app is a handy way to tour this museum and make sense of the stories that these treasures tell and the histories they represent.
If you are just visiting London, then British Museum should be in the top in your shortlist choices for your itinerary. Whether you have just a weekend at your disposal or an entire week, a visit to London’s British Museum is not only educational but also soul-enriching. Access to the British Museum is free and is one of the major draws, although it is customary to make a small contribution to support the upkeep of this truly magnificent museum.
The exhibits at the British Museum are astounding and attract visitors from all across the globe. Last year, over 7 million visitors flocked to it from far-and-wide making it one of the top-visited museums in Europe, just behind the Louvre in Paris.
Every single object at the British museum has a fascinating tale to tell. Some of the famous collections at the British museum include the Elgin Marbles (aka Parthenon Marbles), Rosetta Stone, Assyrian Lion-hunt reliefs, Lewis Chessmen, Mask of Sutton-Hoo, Bust of Rameses and the Aztec Turquoise serpent, to name a few.
