We only had two hours to visit here...no problem. The museum gave us a highlights list and we went on a fun scavenger hunt to find them all. Do not miss this place on your London visit.

Despite how some of its artifacts have been "acquired", this is still one of the most well-maintained and expansive museums in the world. It needs to be seen by any lover of history. Bonus, it is free to enter though a donation is "suggested".

This museum it is just amazing, it must be the most important collection to understand humankind.

There are so many treasures and iconic pieces of history that you can be there forever.

It is a huge museum, so prepare your visit, you could be around 2 hours...or the whole day. Audioguide is a must, with you will seize the opportunity to visit.

Special recognition for a free admission, this is something remarkable in an over-marketed world.

The audio guide is very good and givers lots of options. We set our two kids (teens) loose together to tour the museum--the chose the "top ten" audiotour and it really engaged them! We could easily have spent several days here, so be sure to decide what you want to see and target your tour accordingly based on the time you have. If you want to eat at the sit down restaurant, I suggest making a reservation when you ente the museum--we did so and were glad we did--there was along line when we sat down and were able to avoid that.
