Truly astounding collections. The BM is a required part of my annual London sojourn. I recommend it to friends, even if they will be in London only a few days.

Sadly the most famous object they have "The Roseta Stone" still doesn't interest me at all despite dozens of visits. Maybe I'm not cultured or sophisticated enough to know the value of it yet. I first went there years ago to see the mummies because to me that's more relatable humanly but over the years and after many many visits, I've learnt to appreciate the other smaller things they have at their disposal. Especially the objects the British explorers brought back from their newly discovered colonies. It also gives you an idea of the scale of British empire back when it was truly The Great Britain. I don't know how many times will I have to visit it to see the entire place as its just not possible in one go nor recommended. I come back with hundreds of pictures and see, learn about something new after every visit. They have so much more stuff in storage than what's on the display. From giant Buddha to tiny little things that need microscope to examine. It's a treasure land for history lovers.
