The museum is huge and full of interesting exhibitions. There are fixed ones and some that are specially curated for a specific period of time, and it is definitely worth exploring. There is also a good selection of souvenirs in the shops on the ground floor if you feel like taking a bit of history home. And also a nice restaurant for an afternoon tea or lunch. Would definitely recommend going at least once! ⛲🏫📷

Ideally, I'd give it a 4.6. Huge, well curated museum. Has TONS of stuff from all around the world and all across time, including the Rosetta stone. Must see if you're in London. The ONLY reason i don't give it a five star review is the cost. Everything in London is expensive (it's an alpha++ global city after all) but, in addition to the cost, there are donating bins EVERYWHERE, to the point of almost being bothersome. Kind of took away from it. Also, very crowded, even on weekdays, but that's to be expected as well. But it's genuinely gorgeous, and the only museum i can think of that remotely rivals it is the Smithsonian... and I'd say the British is probably more extensive.

British Museum was awesome part of our visit to London. Been wanting to visit it since childhood and see a lot of historically famous items. Even if it was really great visit it didn't live up to the hype I had created for myself and I expected it to be a bit different experience, especially how exhibitions were laid out and presented. Building is also very maze like and difficult to navigate, especially if you have some trouble moving around.

A massive museum with multiple floors, and exhibitions so big it could take days to fully explore! Best of all, the entry is completely free! + Free entry. + Great historic displays from all parts of the world. + Guided tours available. + Dining area with okay food if you want to grab a quick bite. - Tends to be a bit crowded. - Only one restroom facility with extremely long lines. If you're in the area it's definitely worth stopping by to see if there's any displays that peak your interest. If you're planning to visit ahead of time and want to see as much as possible, be prepared to set aside a couple of hours at the very minimum. Definitely recommended!

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.
