History Museum
“Displaying one of the world's finest collections of antiquities, the British Museum contains more than 13 million artifacts from the ancient world. With priceless objects from Assyria, Babylonia, China, Europe, and elsewhere, it's hard to know where to begin. But most tourists head first for the museum's most famous exhibits: the controversial Elgin Marbles from the Parthenon, the Rosetta Stone, the colossal bust of Ramesses II, the Egyptian mummies, and the spectacular hoard of 4th-century Roman silver known as the Mildenhall Treasure.”

Art Museum
“Ranking among the top art museums in the world, London's National Gallery represents an almost complete survey of European painting from 1260 until 1920. The museum's greatest strengths are in its collections of Dutch Masters and Italian Schools of the 15th and 16th centuries. Among its highlights are a cartoon (preliminary sketch) of the Madonna and Child by Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo's The Entombment, Botticelli's Venus and Mars, van Gogh's Sunflowers, and The Water-Lily Pond by Monet.”

Observatory
“Greenwich is the home of Greenwich Mean Time by which all the time zones around the world have been based on since 1884. So when you select a time and it says +4 after it, that means it’s four hours after the time at Greenwich. This important market is one of the top things to see in London and one of the most famous places in London too! Make time for it on your visit to Greenwich.”

History Museum
“This impressive museum covers the wars of the last century-- from World War 1 Biplanes, to the rise of fascism, to Montgomery's Africa campaign, to the Cold War, the Cuban Missile Crisis, The trouble in Northern Ireland, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and terrorism. Rather than glorify war, the museum encourages an understanding of the history of modern warfare and the wartime experience, including the effect it has on everyday lives of the people back home. ”
