British Museum

The British Museum was founded in 1753 and is now home to millions of artefacts that document the history of human endeavour across art, science and culture. This includes a vast range of works from every continent in the world, making it one of the most comprehensive collections in existence.

From early human life in Africa, through to ancient civilizations of Egypt, Greece and Asia, the immense size of the collection is seen by millions of visitors every year. It is an invaluable source of educational information for both young and old, revealing the history of mankind through the legacy of the objects we leave behind.
