Visitors can travel the world and experience the collections from Africa, Asia, Europe, the Americas and the ancient world, including iconic objects such as the Rosetta Stone, the Parthenon sculptures, the Lewis Chessmen and Egyptian mummies. We receive around six million visitors a year and are the UK’s top visitor attraction.
