I think I've already said on a lot of occasions that I love it London and I was very lucky to be 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 things I always liked to do in my spare time: going to Hyde Park and visiting museums.
And precisely of the London museums I would like to talk to you today, so I bring you some of the most important ones 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, which are equally spectacular.
– Science museum: It is also one of the most spectacular in the world and has been in operation since 1883, the date on which 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 you can find works by Picasso, Matisse, Dalí, Warhol or Rothko there. 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 beautiful views of the Thames in front of you.
– National Gallery: It is also a must-see and has a collection of paintings ranging from the Renaissance to the Impressionist era, approximately between 12250 and 1900. It has works well known worldwide as "The Venus in the Mirror" by Diego Velázquez, "The Last Supper" by Caravaggio or "The Ambassadors" by Hans Holbein. It is also free and you must plan your visit well as it is huge.
