UK Museums - British Museum, London

One of the great things I discovered on this trip, was that most of the museums had free wifi.  Free wifi is rare in Hokkaido, so I really appreciated being able to check something on the internet or look at my email while I was out and about.

The British Museum has free admission and is close to four tube stations.  I’m very frugal and I love free admission!

When you first enter the museum, it doesn’t seem like the same building you see from the outside.



 
Cradle to Grave by Pharmacopoeia was my favorite exhibit at this museum. The exhibit was created by a textile artist, a video artist, a doctor.  Had I not been involved in my recent medical challenges, it might not have spoken to me the way it did. “Maintaining well-being is more complex than just treating illness.”

  2. Yes, I was also impressed by this piece of art, and it is indeed thought-provocative.

  3. I spent hours here when I visited London last year :) Loved the fact that entrance was free! Here nothing has free entry...which is sad as so many kids would benefit from visiting places like museums!

  4. That last picture looks familiar. I think I saw it at the Samsung Museum in Seoul.
