This chronology lists the many hundreds of temporary exhibitions at the British Museum between 1838 and 2012.
It includes the full range, from early displays of material in a few dedicated cases documented by a slim handlist of objects, to large-scale exhibitions accompanied by fully-illustrated catalogues.
