The British Museum is one of the three greatest museums in the world. It features a rich collection of rare works. The museum was the first to display the Rosetta Stone in its Egyptian Hall. The stone stele is inscribed with a decree in three different languages, and was the invaluable key to understanding language and culture in ancient Egypt. In addition, there are more than 23,000 Chinese relics housed here, the likes of which are rare even in Beijing’s Forbidden City or the National Palace Museum in Taipei.

The British Museum is a public institution dedicated to human history, art and culture located in the Bloomsbury area of London, England. Its permanent collection of some eight million works is among the largest and most comprehensive in existence, having been widely collected during the era of the British Empir
The British Museum was founded in 1753, stemming from the collection of a physician and scientist named Sir Hans Sloane. The museum was first opened to the public on January 15, 1759 at Montagu House in Bloomsbury, which is where the museum is now located. The development of the museum over two and a half centuries is the result of a record of British colonial development and resulted in the creation of several institutions, the first of which was the British Museum (Natural History) in South Kensington in 1887. Some notable collections include the Elgin Marbles of the Parthenon, which became controversy regarding the return of the object to its country of origin.
