One of London’s most recognisable buildings and tourist highlights, British Museum, celebrates a landmark.

262 years ago the British Museum first opened its doors. 1759 was the year they let their first visitors in and they estimate that around 360 million people have visited the museum since.

The museum is closed due to COVID regulations, however you can still do a virtual tour through their website.
