The British Museum

I think this was of Venus?
So I somehow forgot to mention that awhile ago I went to the British Museum which is basically a museum with artifacts from anywhere *but* Britain (well, not exactly.. it's just the name of the museum is a bit misleading as there are rooms dedicated to every corner of the Earth basically). I saw the Rosetta Stone in person which was pretty awesome and a few mummies in the Egyptian room. There are also parts of the Parthenon structure there as well, which is apparently controversial because it was just sort of brought to London a long time ago and now The Parthenon people want it back *dun dun dun*. It was a beautiful museum and I enjoyed it quite a lot as I quite like historical/anthropological museums with artifacts and natural science museums most.
