Once in a lifetime

London British Museum For Tourists

If you thought you had a pleasant experience at the last museum you visited, think again. This museum has some of the most breathtaking artwork on display at all times. Make sure you find out about the rich history of this place as well, you will be very entertained.

The Main Stairs

It is hard to call this section of the museum an attraction, but once you see all of the artwork and fellow museum-goers around, you will enjoy it. The pathway is lit up by lights every few feet and the stairs themselves are another treasure in themselves. You can really grasp the museum by overlooking the banisters and checking far out into the distance. Be sure to find the best time that a lot of the different collections are on display, because not all of them will be displayed every single day. They try to mix it up a little because they have so much. Just like when a rich person needs to spend their money in different places, not all just in their house. They usually have foundations and other things to keep their fans busy. That is what this museum is trying to do.

Enlightenment: Discovering the World in the 18th Century

This exhibit is one that is permanent so you will definitely get a chance to see it while at the museum. That is kind of nice that they put something there that is always there, just to keep everyone happy. There are about 5,000 different pieces that are displayed that can make the viewer truly grasp what life was like in the middle of the 18th century all the way up to the beginning of the 19th century. The museum was founded by an Act of Parliament and that Act can be seen in George the III's library that was restored.
