 The British Museum London – Displaying Human History and Culture

 

British Museum London is located in London and is a museum of the human history and culture. The collections of British Museum is more than 7 millions artifacts, which are amongst the leading and most wide-ranging all 303 British ammo  across the world and start off from each and every continent, illustrating as well as documenting the account of human culture from the start up to the present time.

British Museum London was set up in the year 1753, and is principally based on the huge collections of the scientist and the physician Sir Hans Sloane. This museum was first opened for the public in the year 1759, on 15 January in Montagu House, which is located in Bloomsbury, and on the location of the present building of British Museum. The expansion of the museum over the subsequent 200 years has resulted into the formation of numerous branch institutions, and the earliest being British Museum London (for Natural History), which is located in South Kensington and formed in the year 1887. A few objects in this collection includes the remarkable the Elgin Marbles that are brought here from the Parthenon, which are the objects of extreme controversy and demands restitution to the countries of their origin.

Until the year 1997, while the British Library (formerly focused on the Round Reading Room) shifted to a new-fangled site, the British Museum was only one of its kinds in that site; it housed both a national library and a national museum of antiquities within the same structure. This museum is a non-departmental and has a public body, which is sponsored by the Department for Media, Culture, and Sport similar to any of the national museums, which are located in the United Kingdom; British Museum London has no charges or admission fee. Since the year 2002 the administrator of this museum is Neil MacGregor.
