  • Located in London's Bloomsbury neighborhood 
  • Houses a permanent collection of eight million works 
  • Covers two million years of human history and culture
This stunning museum is a treasure trove for history buffs. Dedicated to human history, art, and culture, exhibits range from from 'Life and sole: footwear from the Islamic world' to 'Celts: art and identity.' The museum is organized into 10 curated departments. It would take at least a full day to see them all. If you are going to be selective, the Ancient Egypt section is a highlight.
