Finding Meaning at the British Museum

Central London is home to one of the world’s most famous museums, the British Museum. Established in 1753, it is one of the oldest public museums in the world. Containing over seven million objects covering a period of two million years of global human and cultural history it can become overwhelming. The secret to finding meaning at the British Museum is to experience one masterpiece at a time and accept that it would take a lifetime to appreciate all that the museum has to offer.

A meaningful museum experience requires a mindful approach, to paying full attention to the current immediate experience.
