British Museum gears up for exciting summer

Pompeii, propaganda and Colombian gold are just some of the attractions being exhibited in the coming months at London’s most important museum

May 21, 2013, 7:07 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- The astonishing success of the British Museum's stunning Life And Death In Pompeii And Herculaneum has ensured the London museum remains one of the most popular in the world. Visitors can still pick up tickets for the Pompeii show, but there's also plenty of other treats to be seen in the museum if you want to get even more value out of your visit. Travellers can also use to book their accommodation as there is a wide range of London hotels near Euston, just a short bus ride from the British Museum, to suit all budgets.

If travellers to London are keen on seeing Pompeii, tickets are still available via the British Museum website, and there is also a huge selection of special events looking at different aspects of the exhibition, including a free film screening (Pompeii's Last Day on July 3rd) and a Roman fresco painting workshop (£35, June 15th). See the museum's website for details of this and other events.

The British Museum also has a free exhibition opening on May 30 looking at Asian Propaganda, which explores political art from the Far East since 1900. Visually rich and dramatic, this exhibition covers early revolutionary messages (1900–1930), the Asia-Pacific War (1931–1945), post-war reconstruction (post-1945), new society (up to 1976), and includes key propaganda devices, such as the use or subversion of tradition and the insertion of propaganda into daily life. Later in the year, the British Museum will have a major exhibition on Colombian Gold (from September 12th), featuring hundreds of stunning examples of gold jewellery and objet d'artsborrowed from the Museum of Gold in Bogota.

The museum is open every day for visitors keen to see its extraordinary general collections, which include incredible artefacts from Ancient Egypt, Rome and Greece, Africa, the Middle East as well as fascinating items illustrating the early years of Britain itself, from Roman London, through the Anglo-Saxons and Tudor London to the present day.
