Exploring London: British Museum

The British Museum is so huge!!! One day is probably not enough to go through each artifact and exhibits… especially if you’re into this kind of stuff. The museum has three floors: upper, ground and lower. I went to the museum around 3PM and due to the limited time, I only managed to see the ground floor. To be honest, going through their collection in a short amount of time got me so overwhelmed. So if you’re planning to visit, condition yourself!
