Located in West End’s Bloomsbury district, the British Museum has an astonishing collection of eight million relics. The cultural institution was the world’s first public museum and has more public works than anywhere else on Earth. Although it started as an Irish doctor’s meager collection, the museum’s rapid growth paralleled that of the British Empire during the 18th and 19th centuries.
The museum’s artifacts span two million years of human history and the fascinating cultures that have developed over time. Collections are organized by theme and location, and visitors can browse through mankind’s greatest discoveries of past civilizations.
Departments of the institution include China, the Americas, Africa, Greece, Asia, and prehistoric ages. The Egyptian collection is among the museum’s most celebrated sections with artifacts dating to the time of antiquity. The legendary Rosetta Stone, granite statues, mummification exhibits, and ancient hieroglyphs are among the items to be discovered here.
Other sections delve into the human relationships with death, memory, desire, and love and there’s an extensive list of objects depicting real and mythological animals. Some of the prized animal works include Greek marble statues, Japanese porcelain elephants, and Neo-Assyrian artwork.
Entrance to this cultural wonderland is free, but the museum politely recommends a donation of £5. Private tours and special exhibitions are also offered but come at an extra price. The UK touring exhibits are scheduled for a limited time, and it’s wise to find out which presentations coincide with your trip to the British Museum.
