in Greatbritain2017, Museums
Originally, Jennifer had the British Museum slotted between two other things in our of our days in London. I stepped in an said "I don't really care what else there is, that museum is going to be a full day". Sadly, it opens late (10:00) and closes early (17:30 although it was posted as 17:00). While 10:00 is actually late for an opening, because I had gone to the ministry of sound night club the previous night/morning and had gone to bed quite late, I showed up there with little sleep, but was there on time :)
Once inside, it was a race to see everything in just 7H. While it's not as big as the Louvre in Paris, it's still huge if you have a decent look at displays, and 2 days or more if you look at everything carefully. The aramaic and egyptian collections were nothing but impressive:
silly me thought that the rosetta stone was at the Louvre, but Paris only has a copy since the British re-stole the original from the French :)
The other collections were good too:
The greek temple bits were good too (some original, some copies):
And I literally finished within minutes of the museum closing, and really had to go at a good pace. It's definitely a great museum, glad I went.
