Just a moment’s walk from Covent Garden stands one of the world’s greatest museums — a repository of extraordinary artefacts covering almost 2 million years of human history, all housed in a magnificent neo-classical building enhanced by Foster & Partners' Great Court which opened in 2000.
With a permanent collection that includes the Elgin marbles, the Rosetta stone and the Sutton Hoo helmet, and a rolling programme of themed exhibitions that draw together items of historical importance from all over the world, the British Museum is a place where the past is brought to life in a spectacular way.
