Did you know that
Today in 1753, the British Museum was established. The British Museum’s collection of over seven million objects represents the rich history of human cultures. The collections are amongst the largest and most comprehensive in the world and originate from all continents, illustrating and documenting the story of human culture from its beginnings to the present.
That according to Europeana.eu (on FB). Happy birthday to one of the world’s most excellent museums (and my very favorite).
