The British Museum is a must visit place on any trip to London. The name is misleading – the museum isn’t just about British History, it’s about global history. During the days of British Empire they plundered the globe for the finest antiquities, while not good for the countries they robbed today, it’s concentrated a ton of great historical artifacts in one place.

Don’t miss the Rosetta Stone! Plan to spend a whole day here. But don’t feel bad if you can’t see everything. You could spend several days here. Best of all – it’s free except for special exhibitions.
