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

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!

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. :)

Love this museum!! So many interesting things to see and learn here. Staff is nice and friendly. Toilets from floor level were dirty and smelly on a Friday evening. That's why I don't put a 5 star. Also not many benches available to rest, because it's a huge place where you get tired, and need to rest a bit. But other than that, love this museum!! Went there like 5 or 6 times now, and enjoy it every time.

The guides that they hand out by the entrance is really good as it plans your visit depending on how much time you've got to spend at the museum. Loads to see inside though. I'm impressed as to how much history is in there! I love how each room in the museum was designed as compliments the artifacts. It's free to come in, though a £5 donation is encouraged - which is really worth what you're going to see.
