About the The British Museum

One of the UK's main national museums, although despite it's name, it focuses mostly on other countries.

Has an impressive collection from Egypt, Greece, Roman remains and a host of other item specific collections such as the clocks or money galleries.

Most of the galleries lead off a huge central courtyard which is under glass.

The museum is free to visit, although the major temporary exhibitions often have to be paid for.

You can easily spend a day there.
