The British Museum has three acres of art including Greek, Egyptian, Chinese, Japanese, Islamic, Indian, Old Master Drawings, European Decorative Arts, Romanesque Sculpture and illuminated manuscripts. The most famous pieces of the collection includes the Elgin Marbles, the Rosetta stone, and the Lindisfarne Gospels. To avoid death by museum, hit the highlights and then focus on an area of interest such as Greek. Go to the back door on Montague Street and look for the Lions on either side of the door. It’s much less crowded. You may book this tour in www.britishtours.com to have a private tour guide that will make the visit educational.
