british museum

The British Museum is arguably the finest museum in the world, and one of the must-see sights of London.

Bloggers write frequently about their visits to the museum, whether they are taking in the main sites, such as the Rosetta Stone and the Assyrian winged bulls, or the regular special exhibitions, held on almost every subject and region imaginable, from Polynesia to Bengal.

Often bloggers are writing also about the controversies associated with the museum, most frequently about the Elgin (or Parthenon) Marbles, and whether or not these should be returned to Greece.
