Massive stone columns, similar to those found in ancient Greece, guard the front of the museum, allowing visitors to pass underneath and explore some of the most unique and incredible exhibits from all over the world. In a matter of minutes, you are able to see the Rosetta Stone, the Mummy of Katebet, and samurai armor from 16th Century Japan. Even the interior of the museum is a work of art itself; the most recent addition includes the 'Great Court,' a massive space containing beautiful marble floors and an expansive glass ceiling. The museum has 15 different tours that run each day, so, whether you are a history buff or just want to casually stroll the colossal structure, there is sure to be something for you.
*There are 90-min weekend Highlight Tours that cost £12.00 (children under 12 free)
