Museums of History Around the World

Do you love to travel? Does learning about our past facsinate you? Cuz it should! We've put together some of the world's best historical museums for you to check out. They have stuff like mummies, the best jewelry in the world, the oldest paintings and much, much more. Check it out!

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!

Nope. Good riddance.  :) Okay, I'm totally kidding. I'm gonna miss that guy so much that I don't even know how to properly put it into words. He's such a great person, and I can't recall ever thinking of him as anything else. Everything about his personality is truly admirable, and I can proudly (but also maybe not so proudly because this is embarrassing) say that I look up to him; I think I kinda always have, even when I'd never communicated with him in any way. His debating skills - as everyone has mentioned - are outstanding, his intelligence is amazing, and his sense of humor is one of the best I've seen on this site (no offense to anyone else! you all have unique charms of your own!). He's always been so respectful to everyone, even if he strongly opposes their views. I can safely say he's one of the coolest people I've ever met thus far. Mark's username is one of the first I remember seeing when I first joined KW, and I'm sure it's one I'll never forget. I really hate seeing yet another legend go. But I'm truthfully certain he'll go places in life, and I hope the world treats him well. ♥

All this does help somewhat. Though I prefer listening to music that suits my mood.

Contrary to popular belief, don't have a large group of people. If you have a large group; you'll have more people you'll have to look out for, plus zombies like having the idea of more people because it means more flesh. Don't take any items that you can't carry onto.

Yes. I've been thinking about him lately and how he'll be gone soon. I don't agree with his views but he left an impact on the debating community of Kidzworld. I'm turning 18 in October so I can relate to him about leaving KW.

Definitely! While I disagree with some of his views, it was always enjoyable to read about his views and arguments.
