Reviews about The British Museum

E26***89

5/5
Reviewed on 24 Aug 2019

This is a world-recognised museum of the highest quality. Exhibits are thoughtfully displayed with historical and national expertise evident throughout. The museum is always packed with huge queues to get in during the holiday peak times, winter and summer. It is definitely worth a visit but make it the first thing you do in the day - fewer people. The breathtaking exhibits from British and World culture never fail to amaze no matter how many visits. All items on display were legally obtained and protected against damage by expert care. The world should be grateful to this august institution. Unlike most in the eorld, this museum remains free to enter although I always give a donation.

After security checks entered the museum atrium, they went straight to the place where the guides were rented, most of which were Chinese tourists. Since there weren't many tourists at the time, they quickly rented a Chinese guide for 5 and took the time to familiarize themselves with its usage before the pavilion opened. The Chinese guides provided by the museum are very convenient to use, and the contents are rich and arranged in many ways. They can choose either excellent guides, or guides according to drawings, or flexibly select by pressing digital keys in the exhibition hall. The content can be repeated and displayed on a small screen, so it is very helpful to visit and find collections. In the Egyptian Hall, we saw Rosetta Stone, one of the three treasures of the British Museum. This stone stele is from Egypt, engraved with three different versions of the ancient Egyptian Pharaoh's edict. According to the comparison of these words, archaeologists gradually mastered the key to deciphering ancient Egyptian civilization. In the Greek exhibition hall, we saw another Elgin Marbles, a sculpture of the Parthenon temple, more than 2,500 years old. The collection was purchased by the British royal family and later moved to the British Museum, which has a history of more than 200 years. As the closing time approached, the staff began to clear the exhibition. As they stepped out of the exhibition, they saw Sir Hans Sloan hanging on the wall. From the introduction of Chinese guides, we know that it was his generous donation that led to the birth of the British Museum. At the same time, it was also his advanced concept of civilization progress at that time, which enabled us and tourists from all over the world to visit the holy place of this cultural treasure free of charge.
