British Museum Collection


The British Museum has relaunched its website and made a large part of its collection available to view online.
Around 275,000 of the museum's 7 million + treasures spanning two million years of history have already been uploaded to the new site, and the remaining items will follow over the coming months. The initial batch consists of a large number of prints, drawings and other flat items, as well as information from the curatorial database. Additional images of 3D objects will be uploaded over the course of the next 2 years.
