British Museum - London
The British Museum is an exhibition hall in London committed to mankind’s history and society. Its perpetual gathering, numbering almost 8 million works, is among the biggest and most exhaustive in presence and begins from all landmasses, delineating and reporting the story of human society from its beginnings to the present.
The British Museum was built in 1753, to a great extent focused around the accumulations of the doctor and researcher Sir Hans Sloane. The exhibition hall initially opened to people in general on 15 January 1759 in Montagu House in Bloomsbury, on the site of the current historical center building. Its extension over the accompanying more than two centuries was to a great extent an aftereffect of an extending British pilgrim foot shaped impression and has brought about the formation of a few limb establishments, the first being the British Museum (Natural History) in South Kensington in 1881. A few questions in the gathering, most eminently the Elgin Marbles from the Parthenon, are the objects of contention and of calls for compensation to their nations of origin.
