The British Museum is a museum  of human history and culture in London. Its collections, which number more than seven million objects, 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.

The British Museum was established in 1753, largely based on the collections of the physician and scientist Sir Hans Sloane. Some objects in the collection, most notably the Elgin Marbles from thee Parthenon are the objects of intense controversy and calls for restitution to their countries of origin.

Like other publicly funded national museums in the United Kingdom, the British Museum does not levy an admission charge.
