I had gone to the British Museum with my Art and Society class a couple weeks ago but I didn’t get to see much with my guide so I went back last week with my flatmate, Tracie. If you’re in London you can not miss the British Museum it is reportedly one of the best museums in the world and they have a rare collection of things…its just remarkable! The most iconic is the Rosetta Stone! WOW!
