In my opinion, easily the best museum in London. The exhibits hold a wealth of treasures and really capture the imagination. It's also pleasant to not have the the overwhelming stench of colonialism - a rarity in London museums. Unfortunately during my visit, general browsing and hanging around was discouraged due to Covid-19 safety measures, but you could really imagine this would be a great place to waste an afternoon!

The Treasures exhibit at the British Library is free, and it's astounding what's in the collection. My companion was super skeptical but it ended up as one of our favorite attractions. The items on display are amazing - Da Vinci notes, handwritten Beatles lyrics, copies of the Magna Carta, a letter from Michelangelo, religious texts from all over the world. You must visit

We were staying next door, and it's free, so I popped in to see what it was all about. The "Treasures Gallery" was fantastic, filled with priceless beautiful and one of a kind works from all around the world.

Since I moved to London I became a member of the British Library. Outstanding business resources, magnificent exhibitions and great food at the cafeteria.
