Discover London museums

Of the numerous London museums, the National Gallery is a must-see. Located in Trafalgar Square, it exhibits world-class paintings, from Bruegel's 'Adoration of the Kings' to Velasquez's 'Venus at Her Mirror'. Meanwhile, the extensive British Museum, on Great Russell Street, displays a range of ancient anthropological artifacts, from Egyptian mummies to Hindu statues and Aztec mosaics.
