At the weekend, my husband and I went to London to go and see the Babylon exhibition at the British Museum.
The bulk of the artefacts came from British Museum London, the musée du Louvre and the Réunion des musées nationaux, Paris, and the Vorderasiatisches Museum Berlin.
The exhibition explored the stories and myths that surround Babylon looking at the evidence to decide whether they are true. The Hanging Gardens of Babylon, Tower of Babel to name a few, it was an interesting exhibition, although many of the exhibits are already on show at the museum.

I would say the British Museum is possibly the best museum in London. It is absolutely world class in terms of the artefacts that it holds, from ancient civilisations to more recent times.

There was also another exhibition on of contemporary sculpture dotted around the museum, which were really good, and all very different from each other.
