Events in London - Wednesday 15th January

Need some inspiration for 15th January? The British Museum first opened its doors on this day in 1759. It was in a totally different building back then – not the huge museum that we have today – and consisted chiefly of Sir Hans Sloane’s “cabinet of curiosities” and 17,000 manuscripts from George II’s library.
