The British Museum #TakePart2012

With only a few days left in London, I decided to go to The British Museum to see the Olympic and Paralympic medals exhibit. I visited this museum the first time I went to London, and I really enjoyed it. There are a lot of cool things to see - the Rosetta Stone, hundreds of mummies, statues. Egyptian artifacts always fascinate me, and The British Museum has a lot of them! I recognized a lot of the things I saw from the first time, which was fine because I had to breeze through the museum once again.
