Before going on my trip it rained a lot in London. On one of the rainy afternoons I went on a guided tour of the British Museum. And since I haven’t had time to put together any posts from my recent trip I thought I would share some of the posts I was working on before the family arrived and such.
We saw many stunning artifacts and artwork that I studied in school and it was a thrill to see them in person. I was surprised that visitors are allowed to take pictures. Most of the museums I’ve been to frown upon this. However, I won’t show photos of everything since trying to photograph items in glass cases is tricky for me.
As you can see by the photo of the Rosetta Stone.
Here are some of the photographs that worked better than others. Since I’m not an expert, I’ll include links to the British Museum website for the photos shown to describe the images and time period.
Random photos I snapped while walking through the rooms:
If you are in the area I would highly recommend visiting this museum. We only spent a few hours there and I know I will go back to see more. It is one of the better museums I’ve been to in years. And my guide was fabulous.
