"BRITISH MUSEUM: Steal Stole Stolen!!" British Museum Tip by RudoElCojonudo

British Museum, London: 318 reviews and 592 photos

In this museum you´ll find some of the most important archaelogic pieces stolen by the British Empire along the centuries. From the egyptian mummies to the greek Parthenon sculptures.
One of the most important pieces of the museum is the Rossetta stone, which allowed to understand the egyptian ieroglifics, but there are many other collections in the museum, such as Ancient Greece and Rome, Africa, China and Japan, Midle East, America, etc...

There are walkmans with explanations about some pieces from 5Pounds. The Greek parthenon pieces are not included in this price, so you'll have to pay a pair of ponds more if you want to listen to them.

There is a clothier available for 3Pounds.

The entrance to the museum is absolutely FREE, anyway the tips are always wellcome.
