The British Museum contains one of the oldest and most comprehensive collections of the world's natural history, human history, artwork, samples and more. The institution has been in existence for centuries, collecting amazing items from all over the world and carefully preserving them for generations to study and enjoy. This video allows a viewer to see firsthand some of the most amazing displays and items the Museum has under its care. Everything from the mysterious statues of Easter Island to the artwork of ancient Mesopotamian cultures 5,500 years old can be found inside the Museum. No surprise, the institution is both a resource for experts with doctorates as well as families and schoolchildren. Because of the capacity and size of the Museum and its total collection, it is not possible to see all there is to offer in one day. This DVD gives a great introduction to what the Museum contains and is a great learning tool about history and museums in general (13 parts, 26-28 minutes each).
