Description

Founded in 1753, the British Museum is the world’s largest national public museum attracting an incredible 6 million visitors a year. Whilst entrance to the museum is free, it is home to one of the finest collections in existence with over 8 million objects spanning 2 million years of human history. Whilst here, your dedicated Blue Badge guide will make sure to cover all of the must-see highlights. The museum opened to the public on the 15th of January 1759 following the gift of 71,000 objects bequeathed by Sir Hans Sloane to King George II. The original collection included books, manuscripts, coins, medals, prints and drawings, and in the early part of the 19th century there were a number of high profile acquisitions, including the Rosetta Stone (1802), the Townley collection of classical sculpture (1805), and the Parthenon sculptures (1816). The Museum has played host to 15 film sets including the more recent 'Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb' (2014), as well as the 'The Wakefield Cause' (1921), 'Day of the Jackal' (1973), and 'Blackmail' (1929). The museum even had its own tube station for over 30 years, up until Holborn Station opened a few yards away in 1933.
