British Museum

Historic grandeur and dramatic backdrops

The British Museum, located in Bloomsbury, was founded in 1753, and was the first national public museum in the world. From the beginning it granted free admission to all ‘studious and curious persons’. Today the museum is home to an extensive collection of ancient Egyptian artefacts, The Parthenon Sculptures and Chinese ceramics to name but a few.

The opportunity to entertain in the Museum’s Great Court, which is the largest covered public square in Europe, and the galleries is made available exclusively to Corporate Partners and sponsors.
