Museums - The British Museum

One of the oldest and most prestigious museums in the world is the British Museum. It houses various collections from around the world, so it's the perfect for a one-stop [kwlink]history lesson[/kwlink]! The museum was founded in 1753 and boasts up to 5.4 million visitors a year! That's more people than some countries' populations! As for the museum, the building itself is quite impressive. While in London, you can also check out Buckingham Palace and everything else England has to offer. Now that's jolly good!

Museums - Egyptian Museum

The Egyptian Museum is located in Cairo, Egypt. If you're interested in mummies, pharaohs, unique jewelry and curses, then this is the museum you have to check out. The museum has over 120,000 objects and has many exhibits. There are more than 2.4 million visitors to the museum a year and it's a great place to learn about the Egyptian way of life. You can see a real mummy, learn about the jewelry and make-up of the ancient Egyptians and since you are already in Egypt, go visit a real pyramid. They are one of the Seven Wonders of the World and the only one that still exists today!

Museums - The Smithsonian

The Smithsonian is the largest complex of museums anywhere in the world! The National Museum of American History is the part where you'lll learn all about the United States of America's past. It focuses on the country's timeline, the culture (they even have something on Kermit the Frog), the music, the history of African Americans, native Indians and more. The museum houses over three million artifacts including the original American flag, Abraham Lincoln's hat and Dorothy's ruby red slippers. Located in Washington, D.C., the Smithsonian looks like a castle, has sprawling gardens and was built in the 1800's!

That's a little more controversial and a lot of people would disagree with that statement. It's a little off topic, but personally I don't see anything wrong with making suicide legal for people who are of sound mind and body and are at a point in their lives where you can reasonably determine that things are not getting better, mainly patients of terminal diseases who want some control and dignity in their death.  But, that seems rather far removed from the abortion debate?
