      Description

      The British Museum London was established in 1753. Upon the official opening of its doors to the general public in 1759, The British Museum London made its mark in history as the world's first ever public museum. In those earlier days, the institution welcomed around 5,000 visitors per year. Now, The British Museum London sees upwards of 6 million.

      Home to more than 8 million objects, The British Museum London houses some of the most vast collections in the world. With artifacts originating from all four corners of the globe, The British Museum London has everything from Chinese jade and the earliest known English farthing, to sculptures from the Parthenon and The Rosetta Stone.

      While the collections themselves are reason enough to visit The British Museum London, there is also plenty of activity on the venue's event calendar. Indeed, the British Museum schedule is packed full morning and night, featuring lectures, workshops, debates, films, performances (dance, theatre), story-times and many other family activities, too.
