The British Museum

British MuseumThe British Museum - Description:

The British Museum first opened in the 18th Century largely based on the collections of the scientist Sir Hans Sloane.

The current neo-classical building was erected nearly a century later and is quadrangular with four wings and an imposing classical facade. Inside is a courtyard, the Great Court, covered with a spectacular modern addition – a spiralling glass and steel roof which was designed by Norman Foster and completed in 2000. The courtyard surrounds the round Reading Room with a copper domed ceiling the same size as the dome of St Peter’s in Rome.
