Did you know that the British Museum was the world’s first national public museum? It was also the first museum that covered all the fields of human knowledge. This amazing museum was founded in 1753 and was opened for the public in 1759. At that time, the museum largely had the collection of Irish scientist and physician Sir Hans Sloane.
Over the next 250 years, the museum kept adding to its collections. Today, it has more than 8 million artefacts! The museum has almost 2 million years of human history preserved between its walls. It has artefacts from across the world, including countries like India, Egypt, the Middle East, China and different parts of Europe. Some of the famous artefacts at the museum are the Rosetta Stones, Parthenon Marbles, Sutton Hoo mask and ship burial collection, Egyptian mummies, and the Enlightenment Gallery.
