Por qué lo recomienda la gente del lugar
The British Museum, where I work, is hardly unknown, but there are so many unusual objects, and it is truly exceptional. And with over 8 million works relating to history, art, and culture, there are plenty of surprises. Visit the Clocks and Watches gallery on the hour, and you’ll hear an unusual array of bongs, tings, and tunes. The silver-gilt huntsman automaton in the Waddesdon Bequest gallery is one of the most unusual items. This 17th century drinking game was propelled around a table by a clockwork mechanism with a removable head to drink from. Look out for secret doors in the beautiful and fascinating Enlightenment gallery.

British museum is a public institution dedicated to human history, art and culture. Its permanent collection of some eight million works is among the largest and most comprehensive in existence, having been widely sourced during the era of the British Empire.
One of the world's oldest museums the British Museum is vast and it's collections, only a fraction of which can be public display at any time, are free of charge to visit
Most of the museums in London are free to visit including the British Museum seen below. This hall is huge, so to really capture it you would need a wide-angle lens. I actually used a GoPro for this particular shot.
