Highlights

The Museum presents not only British culture but it is a collection of World cultures such as the Egyptian, Assyrian, Mesopotamian, Greek, Roman, Pacific Ocean, the Americas and Eastern Cultures, etc. Everything is huge here, like the recently refurbished hall called the Great Court. The Museum owns over 9 million objects, of which 2 million are on display. You may not see them all!!! Some of the most important — starting from the very beginning — is the one million and six hundred thousand year old Hand Ax from Africa; to some of the rarest kept Egyptian statues, the Rosetta Stone, the Egyptian Mummies, the Assyrian Palace's Freezes with details of all their battles quoted in the Bible. Included is the Mesopotamian 2000 BC Standard of Ur - from the small but powerful Mesopotamian town where Abraham was born; the Parthenon Sculptures, as well as Roman sculptures like the Portland Vase; Caesar’s and Augustus’s Iate I century BC busts; and the Anglo Saxon Hoards recently discovered.
