No visit to London is complete without exploring this iconic museum in Fitzrovia. When it opened in 1753, it was the first national public museum in the world.  Get there early in the morning to avoid the crowds: annual visitor numbers come in at nearly 6 million. In addition to the Rosetta Stone, ancient Egyptian mummies and an enormous moai sculpture from Easter Island are can’t-miss highlights.
