I think I have already said on many occasions that I love London and that I had the great luck of living there for almost a year, so I was able to discover wonderful corners of both the city and its surroundings. With so many things to do, there were two that I always liked to do in my spare time: go to Hyde Park and visit museums.
And precisely about the museums in London I would like to talk to you today, so I bring you some of the most important and that you must visit yes or yes when you are in the English capital. Take note:
– British Museum : One of the most spectacular in the world and the most important in the whole of the United Kingdom with more than 13 million pieces that come from all continents. 4 million people visit it every year and can enjoy sculptures such as the Parthenon, the Rosetta Stone, coins, engravings, drawings and prehistoric objects or also visit some of its temporary exhibitions that are equally spectacular.
– Science Museum : It is also one of the most spectacular in the world and has been in operation since 1883, when it opened its doors to the public and began to complete a collection that currently amounts to some 300,000 pieces. Here you can see the great scientific and technological advances in history, such as the first looms, the first steam engines, the first planes and ships, the arrival of the IMAX cinema … A review of history in a fun and highly technological way.
– Tate Modern : It is the most important contemporary art gallery in London and one of the best in the world thanks to the fact that there you can find works by Picasso, Matisse, Dalí, Warhol or Rothko. Admission is free so you have no excuse not to enjoy so much wonder together. It has a restaurant on the top floor where you can eat with a beautiful view of the Thames in front of you.
– National Gallery : It is also a must-see and has a collection of paintings that ranges from the Renaissance to the Impressionist times, approximately between 12,250 and 1900. It has well-known works worldwide such as "La Venus en el Espejo" by Diego Velázquez, "La Last Supper ”by Caravaggio or“ The Ambassadors ”by Hans Holbein. It is also free to enter and you should plan your visit well as it is huge.
