It was very beautiful day, an eye catching structure and alot of new for me and old things to watch. We took so many photos and I especially love the African corners.
The museum itself was very nice, however, some the exhibits cost an extra fee which not knowing how good they were we did not partake. The rest of the museum was extensive and the local exhibits of medieval England was on point, though they should clean the jewelry to show off the shine. The other stuff, you can see in most museums, like mummies etc. Main point, when England is having a heat wave, this museum is not airconditioned.
Possibly our fault but we didn't expect the museum to be rammed on a rainy Tuesday in early July. We had to queue a while to get in and once inside was absolutely heaving. Had no chance of getting near the Rosetta Stone and getting bodily barged out of the way in the mummies display was a highlight!One of our party felt faint from the heat and had to go outside to cool off - this was particularly noticeable on the upper floors. We'd spent several hundred pounds getting to London and we left feeling very deflated and somewhat moist!
The breadth of displays encompassing human history was just something that's difficult to plan on when you only have a half a day for a visit, while on vacation. This museum warrants multiple visits. I only had about three hours to spend on a Sunday and so tried to see as much as I could. The Egyptian display was very crowded, but the mummies were worth it. Other highlights were the Persian, Greek, Roman, Japanese, and Chinese antiquities. And finally the timekeeping exhibit.Entry is free and it's close to Russell Square and Tottenham tube stations, and 10 minutes south of Euston train station.
What an amazing place! From the moment you enter, you are taken aback by the pure majesty by the building itself. Inside you are treated to a plethora or exhibits to feast your eyes upon, so allow yourself a good few hours to take it all in.I personally enjoyed the Greek & Roman section prior to entering the Egyptian section, which was breathtaking. There is so much to see & enjoy, do I’d recommend getting in early.Highly recommended for any visitor to London.
Amazing place. On this visit we enjoyed the Money exhibit & the room dedicated to Clocks. You could spend a month & barely scratch the surface. Note it is very crowded despite the massive scale. Interesting to see some acknowledgement that some of the amazing pieces on display were plundered & returns to their countries of origin are now being negotiated.
Please be advised that if you are heat-intolerant, this isn't the place for you in the summer! We went mid-June when it was about 80F outside. We walked in and the atrium was very warm. I thought it may be due to all the windows making it like a greenhouse. Well, we went into one of the exhibit wings and it was even hotter in there! Warm, stagnant air, packed with people. No air flow. There was one dinky stand fan and the museum worker was sitting on a bench with the fan pointed at her face. Lol. There's no way to concentrate and read/look at everything when you've got sweat rolling down your back. We walked out and it was much cooler outside. So, that visit was a big waste of time. We did go previously in Dec 2021 and enjoyed it. There is a lot to see and read which is why we went back this time - to see what we may have missed.
Beautiful! I spent hours there and still haven’t had enough I recommend everyone to go there if you still haven’t!!!!!!
incredible place, so wonderful to pop into on a regular basis - love this place and have joined as a member also
We had a few hours to kill so thought we’d come here to see a slice of British history. Entirely my fault for not doing my research, but this museum houses artefacts from across the globe.As a consequence I found it all rather tiresome I’m afraid, not helped in the least by the fact it was stiflingly hot owing to many rooms not having air conditioning.Great if global history is your thing. But wasted on someone like me I’m afraid.
Number One suggestion: If you have a 10 am reservation, don't arrive until at least 10:30. The line was wrapped around the block! We went to Starbucks across the street and waited it out. Bags were searched but oddly enough, no one really looked at or scanned our phone tickets. Beautiful museum but the end of our trip and I was exhausted and couldn’t walk much. Hubby viewed some highlights and liked it but everything is spread out into little areas. Lots of walking. Luckily the atrium is full of benches to take breaks. Thankfully the tickets were free, as we wouldn’t have gotten much value if we paid something.
The museum is fantastic, with many great exhibits, including the Rosetta Stone, the Elgin Marbles, and an extensive mummy collection. We were there in mid-June, not a terribly hot day (~80 degrees F outside), but the museum had no air conditioning, very little ventilation, and we simply couldn't stay there as long as we would have liked to. I would gladly pay an entrance fee if the money would go toward some climate control!
I went to the British Museum to see artifacts and other historical things about Great Britain. However when I visited, I saw that the museum did not contain any English things at all. Not recommended.
Can't begin to describe how much stuff there is in this place; awesome. The hand-out map showing where the most popular displays/artifacts were located, was a big help. You can plan to spend all day there; but after 2 - 3 hours, you'll wish you had planned for a second visit some other day.
The collection is enormous, you need to come with a plan (or at least a few must-sees) or you will spend hours wandering the halls and taking it all in. The Egyptian collection is particularly interesting, and very extensive. Some areas tend to be more crowded than others but it didn't feel super busy to me.
This was our first visit to this legendary Museum and wow - so much to see and so much history there...in our four and a bit hours we could only really scratch the surface of what was there, and after spending an hour in the first room we came to we had to prioritise the big ticket items in order to make the most of our stay. If we lived local it would be the sort of place I would visit on a regular basis and just focus on a room or two at a time.The museum is easy to reach in central London, close to Tottenham Court Road, so well connected for the Tube and Elizabeth Line. It's free to enter although advised to book tickets (with time slots) in advance - although oddly the main public and ticketed queues all seemed to pass through the same security area anyway so was no quicker than just turning up. I had made a charitable donation online when booking the tickets - it was right to make a donation to help the upkeep of this amazing and unique collection of history from all over the world.The internal courtyard features an airy roof so it's like being indoors but outside - it was a hot day outside when we visited (30C degrees) and it felt warm inside too. Because of the heat we bought some drink to hydrate (which was expensive but I thought it was fine as it was another way of making a charitable donation anyway). The paper guide provides a small map with all the big ticket items marked on it, so that was helpful in enabling us to see the top things and not miss anything of historical significance. You could easily spend a week here if you were reading all the signs that accompanied the various exhibits...all we could do in the time was have a quick browse in each room and move on to the next one. We saw the Elgin marbles (Parthenon sculptures), Rosetta Stone, Portland Vase, indeed we ticked off all the 'Don't Miss' items in the paper museum map. There was a fascinating display about the history of money with some real oddities there. So much to see, and only so much my back could take. The only niggle was the long queues for the toilets and a general lack of places to sit and rest.We visited the shop and bought a magnet to take home to remember our visit. I resisted the temptation to take home a life-sized replica of the Sutton Hoo mask - yes you can buy those if you have the budget and somewhere to put it. I would definitely visit again if spending more time in London.
We visited here in May and, although they have some awe inspiring historical pieces here, it was far too crowded and loud to really enjoy.
Huge place with artifacts from all over the ancient world. It is free! My wife and I were saying that it is called "The British Museum" but only a small part is actually from Great Britain. We spent 3 hours, had lunch, and reached information overload - and had only covered a little less than half of the place. There is a lot to see; much of it from ancient times in Assyria, Egypt, Rome, and Greece. Learned a lot; if you go during a school day (as we did), the school groups can overwhelm - had to skip some areas as a result. Recommend figuring in advance to plan what you want to see.
Too much to see in one visit! The Rosetta Stone, artifacts from ancient Egyptian eras, Assyrian antiquities, Chinese and Japanese art and much more if we had more time. Don’t go on a warm day if it can be avoided, there is no A/C in this enormous museum. The Greek and Roman statues were amazing as well. I can see why many countries would like to have these treasures returned!
Great museum. You could spend a week there looking at all of the fascinating items. It's free so that helps.
It would take weeks to see everything this museum has to offer. Ask one of the people at the service desk for a recommended itinerary. The individual we talked to help us plan our visit. Don't miss visiting this museum.
The famed Rosetta Stone (the stone that inspired the name of the language learning program, Rosetta Stone) is housed at British Museum. The Rosetta Stone dates back to 196 BC and was discovered in July of 1799 by soldiers of Napoleon in the Egyptian city of Rasheed (translation Rosetta). The stone has three languages on it, Greek, Ancient Egyptian (hieroglyphics), and Demonic. The inscription on the stone translates to an official message regarding the pharaoh Ptolemy V and those who support him. It roughly is about all the good things regarding the Pharaoh. You are able to see the Rosetta Stone at the British Museum in London, England, UK.
I've been here before and loved the place, however with it being 27 degrees outside then coming in to what effectively is a green house was not a good idea, I should have really thought this through, I ended up spending about 10 mins in there before walking out.
Absolutely an amazing place. Blown away in each room. Overwhelming so much so that we had to leave with the plan to return
I really wanted to like this place, but, the day we visited must have been ‘take all the kids in grade school to the museum’. Plus, it was hot, and the place has no AC. I just got tired of seeing the same things. The mummies were cool, the Rosetta Stone a must see, but, everything else - I hate to say I was bored after an hour. You can’t possibly read every notation for every item even if you went every day for the rest of your like. It’s too overwhelming.
Poorly organised. Close museum early without proper communication and many of us were rush out of the museum. There is no way to complain.
Alot to see in the british museum.the staffs are very helpful,its a big must to visit while in london.
Issue re needing a wheelchair for one of us. We had phoned the BM the night before our booked visit to an exhibition and was told wheelchairs were already booked but one would be free for us. We turned up. No wheelchair, all five (five???) already booked. More being bought, none available, should have booked. Well, we did call yesterday. Becoming a saga…finally we went to reception and Alastair finally agreed we could take the one booked for 15.00. Our booking was for 11.00. We had to return to reception when finished with it. No problem. Clearly more chairs are needed.Issue 2. Accessing Sainsbury Gallery on 1st floor. Lift was being used by everyone - apparently someone was advising people booking tickets for exhibition to access via the very slow lift rather than stairs. A nightmare if you are in a wheelchair or mobility scooter. Lift access & egress pretty tricky especially if you have a lift full of ambulent.Issue 3 the disability toilets. Siting is pretty abysmal for the ground floor ones next to shops. We had one scooter & one wheelchair. People don’t want to walk downstairs to general loos or don’t realised (no signage) the mainstream ones are down the stairs, so the corridor becomes a health & safety hazard as people queue to go in the disability loo. Not a lot of fun if you are disabled. I had to hold back traffic to allow scooter & wheelchair turning space to leave. This needs a proper assessment and re think plus signage on wall opposite the disabled loo.
Interesting museum! The Egypt exhibits were the most interesting and are a must see. It’s nice that the museum is free, but do not bring kids if you don’t like constant complaining and want to stay for longer than an hour!! It’s also pretty crowded, but there are always some less crowded rooms.
Okay this may be controversial but it was crowded, few places to sit and enjoy the art/exhibits, and I was mostly uncomfortable and sad by the amount of exhibits that have been requested to be returned to their homelands. Maybe I’m just American but seems like things should be given not taken! Wish I could get my £2 back for the map

Salt is a highly recommended restaurant in Tirana with excellent food and service. They offer a wide range of choices including seafood, meat, and drinks. The staff is friendly and attentive, and the prices are reasonable. The restaurant has a beautiful decor and a great atmosphere. The sushi is top-notch and comparable to the best in cities like New York and London. Overall, Salt is a must-visit dining destination in Albania.

The Istanbul Archaeological Museum is a remarkable museum with stunning collections, well-presented exhibits, and a beautiful garden. It is part of the Istanbul pass and features greco-roman collections, Alexander's sarcophagus, an exhibit about the excavation of Troy, and a coin collection. While some sections are closed for renovation, the major Archaeology museum is a sight to behold with must-see artifacts such as the Tabnit sarcophagi and sculptures from Aphrodisias. The museum is easily accessible near Topkapi Palace and offers a comprehensive introduction to the Classical heritage of Turkey.
