British Museum – London UK

My last visit to the British Museum was to see the Terracotta exhibition back in 2008 with my family. It was the second time I had seen a Chinese Terracotta exhibition in the UK, both were impressive. One day I must visit China to see the Terracotta Army and other Terracotta figures. However don’t just visit the museum to see a temporary exhibit, as there is an amazing amount of historic items on display.
