The British Museum

The British Museum is the largest and richest of its kind in the world. This Museum comprises the National Museum of Archaeology and Ethnography, and the National Library. It was built in the middle of the 19th century. The Museum is situated in London (in Bloomsbury district).

On one of the houses in Bloomsbury there is a plaque, which tells people that for nearly 50year this was the home of Sir Hans Sloane, the benefactor of the British Museum.

Sir Hans Sloane was an Irishman. He arrived in London nearly 300 years ago with 800 species of plants collected in West India. His particular specialities were natural history specimens and books. All his long life Sir Hans Sloane remained a collector. In his will he offered his vast collection to the people of Britain. Later on the Government bought his collection. Two important libraries were added to the collection of natural history specimens and books.

At first, his collections were on view to the public in a large house not far from the present museum.

The present building was built in 1852.

By law a copy of every book, periodical or newspaper published in Britain must be preserved in the British Museum. All printed matter is kept in a separate building in another part of London.

The British Museum is closely connected with the name of an Italian, Anthony Panizzi. Being a lawyer, he occupied the position of principal librarian  at the British Museum. He also designed plans for the construction of the famous circular Reading Room at the British Museum. Visitors to the Museum who want to enter the Reading Room must have a ticket of admission. Only people оf the age of 21, engaged in serious study and who can’t obtain the books they require elsewhere, use the Reading Room.

   The Reading Room has an unusual shape. It is a perfect circle. The superintendent and his assistants sit in the centre of the room and issue and collect books. The catalogues are kept behind them. Today there’re millions of volumes in the library.

The British museum contains books and manuscripts: British, Greek, Roman and oriental antiquities. This collection is so vast that only a very small percentage is on show to the public. Every year the British Museum is visited by 2 million people.
