About the British Museum 

Located in the Bloomsbury district in Central London, the British Museum has an astonishing collection of at least eight million objects. Near Tottenham Court Road underground station, 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.

The Egyptian collection is one of 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. There’s also 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. Visitors can also book private tours and arrange special exhibitions. Before you leave, check out the items at the Museum Shop, including prints, books, homeware, fashion items, souvenirs, and more.

British Museum Bag Policy

The museum staff will search all packages, bags, rucksacks, and personal items before entering the facility. While a cloakroom is available near the museum’s main gates for coats and umbrellas, they don’t provide luggage storage facilities.
