The British Museum is temporarily closed, following the latest government advice.

When we reopen, our one-way route through the Museum will let you safely enjoy incredible cultures from around the world.

Explore ancient Egypt, Assyria and the Mediterranean and reconnect with objects including the Rosetta Stone and Parthenon Sculptures. Experience the rich and diverse history and cultures of Africa, before journeying across North America and the ancient civilisations of Mexico.

The route includes new displays reflecting on the Museum’s history in an age of collecting and colonialism.
