This neoclassical gem was built in 1847, but Lord Norman Foster’s glass-roofed Great Court wasn’t added until 2000. Star exhibits at the museum include ancient Egyptian artefacts – the Rosetta Stone on the ground floor, mummies upstairs – and Greek antiquities, including the Pantheon sculptures and objects from all world cultures.
