One of the most impressive museums of the world for sure is the British Museum in London. The picture was taken in the reading room.

During the period of the British Library, access was restricted to registered researchers only; however, reader’s credentials were generally available to anyone who could show that they were a serious researcher. The Reading Room was used by a large number of famous figures, including notably Mohammad Ali JinnahKarl MarxOscar WildeBram StokerMahatma GandhiRudyard KiplingGeorge OrwellGeorge Bernard ShawMark Twain,LeninNorbert EliasVirginia WoolfArthur Rimbaud and H. G. Wells
