Latest review

I went to see the Hokusai exhibition which was so absolutely brilliant! Entry was very smooth probably due to it being necessary to book your time slot in advance and which resulted in limited numbers viewing the works at any one time. This also worked since the exhibition was shown within a pretty intimate space. However the building itself is massive and you enter the museum into a spectacularly vast light and open area and up to the exhibition via a broad and winding staircase. Would be wonderful for weddings! The shop was suitably positioned at the end of the exhibition.

5.0/ 5stars

Took about 3 hours to get at least a quick look at almost everything. If I lived here I'd come back for some of the guided tours. My favorite part might have been the Greek and Roman stonework. Those sections were quiet. You could get up close and feel like you were touring the original runes.

The British Museum was a fantastic experience, and I would recommend it to all tourists in London. Though you may stay for 2-5 hours, you will not be able to experience it all. You should make room for a few days to explore this place. I thoroughly enjoyed the Egyptian, Mesopotamian, and Greek rooms. You will enjoy seeing old artefacts including the Rosetta Stone. They have above average food in their dining hall. Make sure to get before peak times because it can get surprisingly overcrowded. This was a special place that I hope to enjoy again!

Well worth a visit. Massive collections from all over the world. Prepare to spend the whole day there and still not see everything this museum has to offer. The only downside is that there is rarely any background information on the artifacts, with a bit more history on the objects it would be much easier to visualize their importance, otherwise it's quite raw and you really have to be into history to fully appreciate it.

This is one of my favorite places to visit when I go to London. I agree with a previous reviewer; wear comfy shoes, because you will be walking for a LONG while, and even then, a few days will be needed to explore every section of the museum, if that's your goal. One of my favorite areas is the ancient Greek and Roman section. I went to art school and studied ancient Greek art, so seeing some of these sculptures in real life was incredible. If any art student is in London, I absolutely recommend seeing these pieces, it's so much more fulfilling to study them in person and not just look at a picture. :)
