This practical guide is split into seven main sections, each covering a key geographical area or historical period: Africa, the Americas, Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece and Rome, Asia, Europe and the Middle East.
An introduction to the collections in each of these areas is followed by a curated selection of key objects, arranged by room number to help orientate your visit.
Following this are seven themed galleries: Enlightenment, Collecting the world, the Waddesdon Bequest, Living and Dying, Clocks and watches, Money, and Prints and drawings. Fully illustrated in colour, there is a complete map of the Museum at the front of the guide, which gives detailed directions.
This is a perfect companion for visitors who want to savour the highlights of the collection.
