The British Museum

20th Jul, 2008 |

If you are interested in history and culture, a visit to The British Museum should be included in your stay. They are open daily from 10 am till 5.30 pm and open later on Thurdays and Fridays.

You might be interested to know that it is actually free to visitors and features a huge showcase ofexhibits. You should try to include time to at least see the following:-

  • The Rosetta stone
  • The Mummies
  • The stone handaxe from 800,000 BC

You might be interested to know that they offer children’s packs called the Back Pack & Family Trails which can make it fun for children. Be aware that if you don’t plan it, you can easily be surprised that the whole day has passed and there is still more for you to see.

Last but not least, you are sure to want some souvenirs from The British Museum, and if you do not fancy having to trudge around London with all your souvenirs, you can actually order them online and have them delivered directly to you.

Madame Tussaud’s Berlin

Madame Tussaud’s has opened in a new city – Berlin. I am sure it will be as great a hit as the original Madame Tussaud’s in London.

Entertainment with a difference!
