    This is a great place to visit with all the old Egyptian and Roman statues, and just a huge amount of ethnographical stuff. Best of all, it's free to visit!

    The British Museum is the greatest museum I've seen in my life. I'd go back in London just to see it again!

    The British Museum is the oldest, and one of the largest museums in the world. Where else can you see some of the greatest treasures of all time under one roof?

    The British museum is amazing, it's one of the oldest museums in the world and has free admissions.

    When I went I got to see - Mummy: The Inside Story, which was a lot of fun and in 3-D.

    One of the highlights of the British Museum is the architecture of the Great Court. To me, it was just as impressive as any piece in the collection.

    If you face the library entrance, go to the right hand side wing and check the Aztec masks made of turquoise mosaics. Amazing!

    The British Museum's most astonishing part in my opinion (not cvounting maybe the cupola :) is the library.

    Just sit in for a while and enjoy the atmosphere of this huge circle "room".

    The British Museum is world famous, and deservedly so. It houses artefacts from all around the world, which will leave you dreaming of far away worlds. Definately worth a visit, or maybe two!

    This poor man was murdered aeons ago. He body was preserved in a bog and is now in the British Museum, apparently in the same uncomfortable position in which he died.

    This has been one of my favourite places to spend spare time in London. The library has been recently renovated and this court area is just magnificent.
