  • parloman – “I got dragged along by my wife at the weekend with my kids and I wasnt expecting much, im not really into museums, but it wasnt that bad actually. The egypt stuff was quite impressive, they've got a lot of big stuff that towers over your head. They even got some massive stone gate entrances that must have been the entry point into cities. I suppose they must have knocked them down and transported them back to england, im not sure the natives would have been too happy about that. I saw the greek marbles too. I dont know what all the fuss is about to be honest. They are good and well done, but there is better stuff to be found in the egypt bit. Give them back, thats what I say. We've got loads of better stuff to replace them with.”
  •  Guest – “It was awesome. Very beautiful stuff. Loved the stuff from japan on the top floor and the greek jars/statues. Going back when I return to visit London again. You can't see it all in 1 day. Becca”
  • JRubin – “The most interesting bit that I saw was all the old english medival stuff. I have heard of the sutton hoo ship which the found buried in the ground with all the grave stuff around it, and I was a bit disappointed that they didnt have the atual boat on display. Or if they did, I couldnt find it. They didnt have hardly any of it, the best bit was that famous helmet, but if you look closely at it then there is practically nothing of it left. It's just little tiny bits and pieces and the rest they have just made up themselves. But there was still some impressive stuff there. I surprised myself when I caught myself looking at all the old medival floor tiles, with pictures of old kings on it. It sounds boring but there was something about them that just appealed to me. Dont know why”
