British Museum

As one of the world’s most famous museums, the British Museum hosts a staggering eight million (!) objects from around the planet, charting thousands of years of human history. 

The collection of Egyptian and Greek antiquities is without a doubt among the largest and best known in the world. Part of the collection consists of the Elgin Marbles, brought back from the Parthenon in Athens by Lord Elgin.

Or the Rosetta Stone, the inscribed tablet from which scholars finally cracked the Egyptian Hieroglyphic code.

These and many more are waiting to be discovered - let me take you on a highlights-tour through this truly breath-taking museum!
