An absolute Must-See, there is an amazing collection of artifacts from every corner of the world, emphasizing the one-time scope of the British Empire. The museum is really overwhelming and cannot be seen all in one visit- not even close. The fortunate thing is that entrance is by donation only so you don't have to feel pressured to get your money's worth when you go. It's much better to make a few short visits, if your schedule allows, than one marathon visit after which everything melts together in your mind.
