In our travels to and from London, one thing we’ve learned is that the dollar doesn’t go quite as far as in other parts of the world. It’s just pricey! To ensure the kids got a “London” experience, we took advantage of the free museums and checking out famous London sights.
The British Museum was simply amazing. I think Jeremy and I could have spent all day there. It’s home to the Rosetta Stone, stone carvings from the city of Ninevah, Parthenon sculptures, and so much more. We were both amazed at everything this museum contained and that is was free to enter.
It also contained real mummies which we all found to be a bit cool and creepy at the same time. It was quite interesting reading about the mummification process. They even mummified animals!
A couple of weeks ago, in history, Emma G studied ancient ways of writing including hieroglyphics. It was so cool when she spotted some in the museum and even recognized the letters! One of the things I love about home schooling and traveling the world.
Anyone been to The British Museum? If you’re ever in London, I highly, highly recommend it. From there it’s only about a 30 minute walk to Buckingham Palace!
