“I viewed the morning, with much alarm/The British Museum, had lost its charm”
I don’t think it’s possible for the British Museum to lose its charm, but this song goes through my head every time I walk by. I visited there on my very first visit to London in 2006 and was simply mesmerized. I went back again last week and had a similar experience. The sheer volume of artifacts from all over the world and throughout history in one place is overwhelming. And it’s free to visit. Enjoy the following images from my latest visit.
