What can be said about the greatest museum in the world? Of course much of the contents were looted by the British in the last century, but they certainly had good taste!

I really enjoyed the imaginative use of vegetarian foods, and the friendly services. Very family friendly layout, with tables at the back where families could eat their own food as well as bought food. Free water and glasses at every table.

The British Museum is also one of the oldest museums in the world, one of the largest collections of antiques and most famous in the world.
A party that is worth noting is the Great Court located in the center of the museum, a huge space with a glass cover in which the reading room of the British Library is.
Throughout the different rooms you can find any kind of object, from china, to prehistoric and medieval antiques or coins and medals from different periods. The most striking parts of the museum are ancient Egyptian section (the better after the Egyptian Museum), and ancient Greek.
The museum is free and, on Thursdays and Fridays, closes later than most museums, so it was the perfect choice for a chilly London evening enjoying good art.

From the moment you approach and see the imposing facade the museum impresses. Heading through the front doors to the atrium and admiring the architecture to the displays of artefacts from so many civilisations it's really inspiring (not getting into debates about them being held there). It give a chance to grab a snapshot of many ancient cultures and civilisations that most will never get to see in their original county.

Only regret is I didn't have more time.
