British Museum always worth a visit no matter how many times you have already visited it. Huge collection well displayed and it offers fun for every age and interest. Another good reason for visit it? It is for free (permanet collection).

I went before we had tier 4 in London and I felt incredibly safe and socially distanced. The artefacts in each room were just breathtaking and take you through many different civilisations. The entrance is just beautiful! For any history lover I advise that this is the museum you see if you visit London. As a Londoner I'm super surprised to took me so long to come and see it for myself. The Egyptian artefacts in particular are beautiful. A must see in London!

I only have good things to say about The British Museum! The collection is phenomenal and the staff are very friendly. Facilities are clean, limited waiting time, excellent cafes and a fantastic place to learn more about Ancient Civilisations.

From the walk up to the building and then entering the grand hall you know this is a pretty special place. We went with young kids so couldn’t see everything before they reached their limited but they were super excited about at the stuff they saw and I te kong if you love history you could spend days wandering around this place and still find new things to intrigue.
