My trip to the British Museum!

on February 14, 2012

The British Museum is about the world, for the world. The Museum was built so everyone can engage themselves in different cultures, so despite their differences they can understand each other. It’s a BIG museum about the history of the world, spanning about 2 million years of human history. It was founded in 1753. My favourite part was looking at the ancient civilizations’ artifacts and sculptures from Egypt, Rome, Greece, and Mesopotamia.
