One of our favourite museum in London, and surely the best one to snap a souvenir picture. It's the most visited natural history museum in Europe!
Just a short distance north of Covent Garden is the British Museum, one of the world's five major museums, a thrilling place.
The British Museum was formerly the Royal Library, and the establishment of the museum dates back to the Age of Enlightenment, an era of explorers, an era of curiosity, and a glorious era full of enthusiasm! People at that time believed that everyone has the responsibility to study hard, ask questions, and find answers. This is the core idea of that era. Especially in the natural sciences, through the expansion of capitalism, explorers brought back a variety of strange specimens from all over the world. The original specimens were collected in the bookcase, just like the current Hall 1. Later, after a series of different forms, the appearance of today is slowly formed. From the huge collection here, it is not difficult to see how the territory of the "Day of the Empire" was so vast.
The British Museum, located in Russell Square, north of New Oxford Street, London, England. Founded in 1753, it is the world's oldest and most comprehensive museum, and one of the world's four largest and most famous museums. It has more than 8 million pieces. However, due to space constraints, 99% of the collections were not publicly displayed. The collection was mainly derived from the British expansion in the 18th and 19th centuries. It was culturally plundered by various countries. A large number of precious cultural relics arrived in London. The number of British museums was too high, and only the scores were hidden in various museums. Of course, including our Chinese collection. Almost every Chinese came to the British Museum and went straight to the Asian Pavilion. They only witnessed the rare treasures of our country.
I am a museum fan. Although I don't have any artistic talent at all, I like to visit museums and art galleries. I feel that my heart is especially calm inside. Sometimes sitting in front of a picture for a long time, people are completely empty, people around are like people are slow to release, the world is particularly gentle and quiet.
The British Museum is the same as the Metropolitan Museum. Tickets are donated and are the oldest and most comprehensive museum in the world. It collects many cultural relics and books and treasures from all over the world. The collections are rich in variety and variety.
After I went in, I bought a Chinese version of the commemorative album. I flipped it and suddenly saw that one of my favorite paintings was printed on it. Katsushika Hokusais "Kaifeng Express", its translation is "Southern Wind, Clear Sky." I don't know why this painting was printed in the book of the British Museum. I thought that this print was collected here. I was very excited, and the tears came up. I rushed to the Japanese pavilion. The result was disappointing, not.
The British Museum is one of the three greatest museums in the world. It features a rich collection of rare works. The museum was the first to display the Rosetta Stone in its Egyptian Hall. The stone stele is inscribed with a decree in three different languages, and was the invaluable key to understanding language and culture in ancient Egypt. In addition, there are more than 23,000 Chinese relics housed here, the likes of which are rare even in Beijing’s Forbidden City or the National Palace Museum in Taipei.
