It’s hard to be critical of a British Museum providing free entertainment for all. It’s a fantastic public facility with a broad array of collections. The collections could benefit from improved lighting and display logic. Nonetheless lots to see and enjoy 😊

If you love the visual arts and viewing interesting educational objects this is the place to visit. It’s free entry. There is a nice restaurant and a good little coffee shop. For music lovers the Sunday Organ recital is not to be missed.

A grand building that showcased an array of exhibits. The Scottish Wildlife also included the rare look at the ‘Haggis’. Plenty of art mediums. #crazycarrsgapyear
