|the glass roof at the British Museum|
I also got a chance to ask the guide which of the tours he liked best. Not surprisingly, he said "this one!" ;-) He told us that he has spent years doing tours in 4 or 5 other areas of the museum, but that the enlightenment room was his favourite, but a tricky one to do because there is so much going on. I can see why. So... here are some of the things we liked/learned in the enlightenment room list of things we learned and saw.
|Sir Hans Sloane|
|collection of shoes|
|portraits in different mediums (including walnuts)|
|Watercolours by Maria Sibylla Merian|
