For fans of human history there are few, if any, places on Earth more sacred than the British Museum. Located in London, it is the home of the greatest collections of human artifacts the world has to offer (housing approximately eight million artifacts). Together, they tell a comprehensive tale of humanity’s epic journeys, starting nearly two million years ago when primitive humans first appeared on this planet and continuing all the way to the present.

If you seek the full museum experience, you really have to travel to London, which is not something everyone is able to do. With that in mind, this is a modest alternative that looks at some of the greatest pieces housed in the British Museum.
