British Museum

It appears that whatever the French have  found first or did not lose  in war is at the Louvre in Paris, the rest of the world’s treasures are in London at the The British Museum.  The Rosetta Stone, the oldest chess set, the Portland Vase the precursor to Wedgwood China, The Mausoleum of Halicarnassus, Colossal red granite statue of Amenhotep III, Ramesses II, Nereid Monument, Parthenon marbles from the Acropolis of Athens, the Royal game or Ur, and 8 million other pieces of work are all here for everyone to admire. Like the Louvre – this place is time well spent.
