British Museum - London Landmark
The history of the British Museum begins in 1753, when the royal physician Sir Hans Sloan transferred his collection of plant specimens to the museum. In 1820, the Museum of Natural Science was built nearby.
Among the exhibits of the museum, the most significant are the Rosetta Stone, the key to deciphering the Egyptian hieroglyphs discovered in 1799, the Parthenon Sculpture taken from the Parthenon in Athens, Lord Elgin (British ambassador to the Ottoman Empire), a large collection of Egyptian mummies and the burial of the relics of the Saxon Saxon, the Great Saxon Saxon.
In 1998, a competition was announced for a project for the reconstruction of the British Museum. Won a variant of Norman Foster. His architectural idea was to build a glass-metal roof, which is currently an impressive construction.
In the center of the museum is a reading room with a stunning blue-gold domed ceiling made of papier-mâché, where Karl Marx wrote "Capital".
