This is the mammoth home of one of the world’s greatest treasure troves—much of it plunder from other parts of the globe when Britannia ruled the waves. The most exciting of these treasures are the Elgin Marbles stolen from Greece and the Rosetta Stone stolen from Egypt. You’ll need at least 2 hours for the most cursory of visits. An easy-to-follow map at the entrance will take you to all the highlights, including the legendary Black Obelisk, dating from around 860 B.C. and exhibited in the Nimrud Gallery. You can’t see it all, so don’t even try. But you’ll see enough to promise yourself another visit some time in the future. End your quickie tour in the modern Great Court covering the celebrated Reading Room where Karl Marx wrote Das Kapital.

Since the museum doesn’t open until 10am, the early bird can arrive before and wander about for a brisk morning walk, getting the feel of this famous district. Our favorite square for wandering is Russell Square, where the Tube will take you, followed by Bedford Square to the east and Bloomsbury Square to the southeast.
