Five Cool Museums You Should Visit in London, England, London, England (B)

One of the fabulous things about London, England is that it has crap ton of museums to explore. It will likely take you multiple trips to the city to see them all! If you don’t have that luxury, you will have to prioritize, unfortunately. Below are a variety of five museums I highly recommend you check out – I hope at least one intrigues you!

Probably the most famous museum in London, the British Museum is huge. You could easily spend all day here, if you’re a fan of world history. The museum has been open since 1759 and it most definitely expanded over the years as Britain added to its collection. As you wander around the place, hopefully you do so with the understanding that there are a number of objects whose ownership remain disputed (i.e. Britain stole vs liberated them). These items include the Elgin Marbles (Greece), the Benin Bronzes (Nigeria), the Rosetta Stone (Egypt), an Easter Island statue (Chile), and thousands of relics from China. However, I must admit, controversy noted, the museum is still an incredible place. It also hosts a number of interesting events such as lectures and films – check its website for dates and times. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
