The British MuseumOne way to see the world and the history of the world is the visit the British Museum. I'm headed to London again in a couple of weeks and I can't wait to hit the Tube and spend several hours in this one-of-a-kind place. I've been to the museum, something like 3-4 times ... and still wander around like a kid in a toy store exploring all that is there.
I always visit the Greek and Roman sections ... where you can stand next to (and touch, if no one is watching) an actual column taken from the Parthenon! I know ... there are some cultural purists that think it was 'rude' or wrong for Imperial England to take ruins from the historic places of Greece, but I'd argue that some of those treasures wouldn't exist at all if not for the action of preserving them from waring factions at the time that were shooting the hell out of this great structure. Anyway, I digress ...
On the latest visit, I discovered the King's Library. Wow ... I want one. One of these days, I'll upload some of my photos.
See the world's history ... visit the British Museum :)
