“Looted Treasures”
Reviewed 30 April 2012

What an incredible museum! Rightly or wrongly, its filled with treasures from the Ancient World. If you ever plan to go and see the ruins of Ephesus or the other ancient wonders of the world, be sure to stop by the British Museum first. You'll see what used to be at these ruins back in the early 1800s before they were carted away by some appreciative historians - otherwise they may have been carted off by the gravel-maker.

“Wonderful time and wonderful tea!”
Reviewed 30 April 2012

This was such a lovely place to visit. Great artifacts to enjoy, a stunning building, and a lovely place to sit outside in the sun. We also went upstairs to the cafe to enjoy cream tea and had a great time. Don't miss!

“A visit to London means the British Museum”
Reviewed 30 April 2012

No matter how many times one heads to London, it doesn't seem right to skip the BM at least for a quick visit. A couple of things people miss are the book collection and the cafe. There seems something very British abut having a pint inside one of the greatest museums in the world. Yes, it is big. Bit a little at a time. Start with the Rosetta Stone and work upward.
