No need to say that is is more than worth visiting. The treasures of the world at a glance. But you have to know that finally everyone gets tired. So many impressions, so long walking

The displays and treasures are quite amazing, I loved the Egyptians. You start with the ancient and work you way through to the 18th and 19th centuries. I find it amazing that the archeological advances made today allow them to X-ray exhibits without disturbing them. And to find soo many treasures buried that gives them the knowledge of what life was like . It was so fascinating.

An impressive architecture. A huge collection from everywhere over the world. Many people even late in the afternoon. So long queue under heavy rain to be controlled by security teams. Why not automate the control process instead of cheking each bag manually?

It is a great museum with loads to see and the architecture is stunning. Annoying about the extra security now... especially for locals.

Visited British Museum to get an experience of the ancient life.
Here you can see relics from life as a far as 3500 BC which means more then 5500 years.
One is in awe looking at the items from the life at that time and continues to marvel as to how developed mankind was even in those early times and how did they create some of the things.
There is a vast display covering various periods and ages and you learn so much studying the objects and the life style.
The museum has a big collection of mummies from Egypt (along with other objects).
The depiction of the life from early Egypt is very well depicted.
One needs to be spending hours at the museum to be able to complete the full tour.
this would require repeat visits.
Definitely worth repeated visits to get insights in to the early human nature.

It is overwhelming, it is ancient history, it is old school, it should be done by everyone at least once in a lifetime. It is what Indian Jones was bring home. I chuckled at the sheer madness of bringing whole walls and other massive things from all over the world just so the British could say it was theirs.... you dont have to read all the details on the cards just marvel at the madness of how it all ended up in one place

The museum is huge and you may spend all day there looking at different exhibitions. The first artifact that I planned to see was the prominent Rosetta Stone. This historical stele, a black basalt stone, with inscription in three languages is welknown for having given the first clue to understand Egyptian hieroglyphics. I highly recommend to see the reach collection of Greek and Roman antiquities such as antique vases, coins, sculptures, friezes of the temples and even the original Temple of Artemis. Also, don’t miss the opportunity to visit the exhibition of Oriental Ceramics. The only discomfort I felt was the lack of AC, but it’s normal for European museums.

I dragged my kids around here and felt bad. Took me back to my childhood of being bored of doing things my dad thought would be entertaining. Great building but the contents are just an exhibition of stuff the British have stolen from around the globe.

Dead people was the highlight for the children.

Misplaced pride.
