The British Museum | Jun 15, 2021

The British Museum opened its doors in 1759. The museum is driven by an insatiable curiosity for the world, a deep belief in objects as reliable witnesses and documents of human history, sound research, as well as the desire to expand and share knowledge. The Collection Online has been expanded and revamped, making it more searchable and accessible. Features include zooming into images, 3D models, and virtual tours.
