Founded in 1753, the British Museum is the oldest and greatest publicly funded museum in the world, exhibiting two million years of human history and culture. The Museum is driven by an insatiable curiosity for the world, a deep belief in objects as reliable witnesses and documents of human history, sound research, as well as the desire to expand and share knowledge.

The British Museum Magazine explores the Museum’s collection of 8 million objects through the eyes of its curators and experts. Published three times a year, the magazine showcases the latest exhibitions, acquisitions and research from across the Museum and around the world, alongside striking visuals.
