Early on in any trip, we want to make sure we visit a museum so we will be going to the British Museum all day on the first weekday we'll be in London. Why not sooner? Well, to be honest, we prefer to avoid going to museums when there might be a lot of children around.
Naturally Rob wants to go to the Ancient Egyptian section and there is a lot for us to explore there. In fact, the museum offers free tours throughout the day. You simply have to try to time yourself and be in the right place at the right time when the tour begins. How cool is that?
Having studied Medieval literature and history in college, I am chomping at the bit to see anything and everything connected with Sutton Hoo.
Alas, because of the timing of other exhibits, we won't be able to take an Ancient Egypt tour but we will be able to take one dedicated to Japan in the morning and Medieval Europe in the afternoon. Truly, we plan on spending the entire day at the museum and I'll try not to spend all of our money on things in the gift shop.
