British Museum

Highly recommended
The British Museum is one of the most remarkable institutions of its kind and its collections encompass a vast span of historical civilisation. At its heart lies Lord Foster's architectural wonder, the Great Court. Visitors will be uplifted by the rare artefacts illustrating mankind's creative genius and the interweaving of muliple cultural influences from prehistory to today. There is so much to see here that more than one visit may well be necessary.
