Por qué lo recomienda la gente del lugar
The British Museum, where I work, is hardly unknown, but there are so many unusual objects, and it is truly exceptional. And with over 8 million works relating to history, art, and culture, there are plenty of surprises. Visit the Clocks and Watches gallery on the hour, and you’ll hear an unusual array of bongs, tings, and tunes. The silver-gilt huntsman automaton in the Waddesdon Bequest gallery is one of the most unusual items. This 17th century drinking game was propelled around a table by a clockwork mechanism with a removable head to drink from. Look out for secret doors in the beautiful and fascinating Enlightenment gallery.

The architecture of the British Museum is almost as impressive as the collection it holds. Entrance to the museum is free (with the exception of special exhibitions) and the building is a great rainy day activity when the weather is not so great in the capital. Head to the very heart of the Museum…

Dominating the Bloomsbury area, with over 900,000 square feet of culture, this is Britain’s biggest and most potent museum. The Elgin Marbles, bought by the British government in 1816, remain both controversial - and a big draw - but the Museum has eight million objects to curate, including the…

“Pole position in London, the National Gallery is at the very centre of the Trafalgar Square. Started in 1824 and regularly refreshed through the centuries by strategic purchases and donations from the collections of impoverished aristocrats, the cut-off date for art works is 1900 (after which you need to visit Tate Modern or Tate Britain). Still, there’s plenty left to enjoy including a cluster of Leonardo Da Vincis, Botticelli and a superb capsule collection of Post-Impressionists, including Monet, Cezanne, Van Gogh’s Sunflowers and Seurat’s Bathers at Asnieres. ”
