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!

KW forums can be fun and all, but i personally think it CAN be a bit too restrictive. now I understand some of the things it restricts, but, when I've attempted to put some of my stories on KW, it suddenly vanishes the moment I leave the page, and then, I tried putting it on story forums, but it decided to yell at me for completely normal words, so I had to go back and alter things that were perfectly okay, and even then it told me it was going to give me a warning. And when I break it up into seperate paragraphs it seems to last too long, and its annoying, but when i put it all together into one post, it yells at me.... so honestly I have mixed feelings. Good for roleplaying, bad for actually sharing anything like a normal person :l
