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.
