We only had two hours to visit here...no problem. The museum gave us a highlights list and we went on a fun scavenger hunt to find them all. Do not miss this place on your London visit.

Despite how some of its artifacts have been "acquired", this is still one of the most well-maintained and expansive museums in the world. It needs to be seen by any lover of history. Bonus, it is free to enter though a donation is "suggested".

This museum it is just amazing, it must be the most important collection to understand humankind.

There are so many treasures and iconic pieces of history that you can be there forever.

It is a huge museum, so prepare your visit, you could be around 2 hours...or the whole day. Audioguide is a must, with you will seize the opportunity to visit.

Special recognition for a free admission, this is something remarkable in an over-marketed world.
