Very busy on a rainy afternoon, even mid-week. But there is a lot to see, so if you're willing to walk around and wait for lines to go down, you'll probably be fine. I spent about 2 hours there and felt I had seen a lot.

Great place for seeing some of the most amazing artefacts of the ancient world and more.

The Egyptology section was of particular interest.

You could spend days here because there are thousands upon thousand of exhibits. Fascinating stuff but for my eyes the low light is a problem and I found some of the cards difficult to decipher.

The range and the quality of objects displayed is unrivalled and the manner in which comparative civilisations are presented is unique. The Special Exhibitions are of the highest quality. A frequent most visit in London for visitors and residents.

This is a must see and one should be plan on being there 1/2 to all day to really enjoy all it has to offer. The line for getting in was a 1-2 blocks long in the rain so as all of this area proper dress is essential.
