Brilliant to visit

Brilliant museum, absolutely must see when in London. We can see displays from across the globe. Egyptian section is the best. Also do not miss Parthenon in the Greek galleries. Other good ones are - Chinese exhibits and African ones. There are always some temporary paid exhibitions in progress, and are always worth it. Rest of the museum is free entry, walking distance from Russell Square. Do not miss the brilliant roof of the main entry hall which was put up by Norman Foster.

Many things can be seen

As I get older, even though I was born in London I am now attracted to visit this wonderful museum every time I return to the city.It is easy to drop in and just savour one gallery.. Do you want to go to ancient Rome? Want to see a Tibetan drinking vessel made out of a human skull? Want to see Dr Dee's actual crystal ball? Look into the eye's of an Easter Island statue? Read the Rosetta stone? All this and much much more can be done in the BM.They also have very good exhibitions inside the courtyard galleries, and in summer time may have some event outside on the grass. It's always busy but seems to accommodate all visitors as there are so many galleries.

Wonderful Museum

A must see for all museum lovers in the world. It has originals of almost all painters. Problem is 1 day is not enough. Please plan 2 or 3 days to visit this wonderful gift by London city.
