London! - British Library and Museum

Some of the world's most relished possessions reside in these two buildings.  No pictures were allowed in the library but one of the only remaining copies of the Magna Carta which was written in 1215 reside and on display.

Outside the British Museum is the St. Pancras train station. It has been seen in the Harry Potter movies and is one of the most beautiful buildings in all of London!

The entrance to the British Museum.

The lobby inside the museum had an incredible roof. It really felt like you were outdoors.


 If you are a fan of ancient history this museum is a must visit.  One of the main attractions is the Rosetta Stone which helped to decipher Egyptian Hyroglyphics.

There were many other interest Egyptian artifacts


 And Greek artifacts.

And even an Easter Island statute.  That was pretty cool too.
