Madame Tussaud’s and The British Museum

Today we visited Madame Tussaud’s wax museum and the British Museum.  Though the wax museum was cool, my favorite was the British Museum.  They had exhibits from all over the world.  It was amazing to see so much history in one place.  On top of that, many of the stuff there were things we learned about in our art history classes.  There were ancient Egyptian statues, mummies and Egyptian literature like the “books of the dead”.  They also had beautiful pottery and statues from ancient Greece as well as the famous Rosetta Stone.  There were so many exhibits it was impossible to see them all.  One of the big exhibits they had on display was the American Pop Art exhibit.  This was one of my favorites.  It was so cool to see the different Pop artists’ work and the process they took to get to the final outcomes of their work.  It was also neat to see the variety of subjects and mediums pop artists used as well as the meanings behind their works.  The British Museum was so amazing I definitely need to go back some day.
