I love this museum. especially the Egyptian Department...... I could wander round this place for hours and hours and of course it's completely free (so leave a donation if you can). I have visited this place every summer for the last .... I dunno how many years..... It's always fascinating... and I am not a huge museum fan generally...Nice restaurant too.

If I were rich and feeling particularly benevolent I would leave this museum enough money to install air conditioning. Maybe they can't because it would have a diverse effect on the exhibits or something, but it is always unbearably hot in summer, which kind of spoils the experience, in my opinion anyway.
