British Museum has Housed in one of Britain's architectural landmarks, the collection is one of the finest in existence, spanning two million years of human history. The courtyard at the centre of the British Museum was one of London's long-lost spaces. Originally a garden, soon after its completion in the mid-nineteenth century it was filled by the round Reading Room, now an information centre and library of world cultures. Broad staircases encircling the Reading Room lead to a temporary exhibitions gallery and a restaurant terrace. Beneath the courtyard are the Sainsbury African Galleries, an education centre and facilities for schoolchildren.
