A Taste of the British Museum

What awesome free things have you discovered in your travels?

When I saw images of the mesmerizing ceiling of the British Museum, I knew I had to visit if for no other reason. I was thrilled to learn that admission is completely free! (perfect for the budget traveler!)

 

Aside from breathtaking architecture, the exhibits therein can suck hours from your day (in a good way!). We wandered the vast halls of exhibits, marveling at Japanese armor, African artifacts, and Egyptian mummies. We even stepped through time as we took a physical tour through the history of clocks and watches (and I attempted to thoroughly analyze the workings of each – side effect of being an engineer!).

Unfortunately, we didn’t realize it closed so early. After only about half an hour of entering, we were quickly ushered out. We were disappointed we couldn’t see more (and we might have moved a bit faster had we known time was so short). But as long as it remains free to enter, we’ll certainly return the next time we’re in town!

11 Things to Amaze You at the Frankfurt History Museum

With so many museums to choose from in Frankfurt, how does one prioritize?  Aaron wanted to visit the History Museum.  I was most drawn to the art of the Stadel or the cinema showcases of the Filmmuseum.  These are all discounted with a Frankfurt Card, so we figured we’d start with one and just go down the line; why not see them all?

Time wound up putting a stop to that idea, but we were fortunate to have started with what I think was the most interesting of them all – because it was the only one we actually had time to see.  It had so many fascinating exhibits to see, it’s no wonder we ended up spending an entire day there.

Here are 11 amazing reasons to visit the Historisches Museum Frankfurt.
